• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

I think it would be helpful for many to post/attach ARC396 data files.

I know the program and download RR database info - but it often the RR text needs to be tediously cleaned up to make it work right.

I'm personally interested in creating a full state highway police profile - with different groups for different sets of states - like the NE states, Mid-West, etc. I'm guessing that would take a lot of work - but if someone else has done something similar that would be awesome.



I'm sure there are plenty of other people that are interested in other types of data profiles/systems too.

There are so many - in fact, maybe too many - places where files can be had. The 396 yahoo group has several; and I'd also look at your desired state's yahoo group- if it has one. I'd also check the ARC396 yahoo group, as well as anyone who has set up their own webpages - sometimes they too have files.

Do some homework. You can start by using the wiki which has numerous links - anything in blue that has a small box with an arrow going out of it is an external (to the wiki) page. Anything in blue is a link here...

It's by no means complete, but it's a start.

Have you tried posting in the state you are interested in? I've done that to where I was going on vacation and have received files without really asking.
