• 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 downloaded the driver and the computer says it is installed. I am using ARC-XT basic software i got from scannermaster. When i click on scanner then configuration editor I can change things in the computer and send to scanner but when I try to send a system to the scanner it pops up that no scanner is connected and I am using the supplied cable

Thanks for any suggestions.

Thank you updating the software finally worked, I tried clicking the update button but that did nothing. Now having trouble i added a p25 system and not getting any sound at all. I am a new user so I guess I keep trying.

Finally got my scanner programmed and it is receiving but the audio is very hard to understand. It is a BCD996P2 scanner and a digital P25 system for Sheboygan county in Wisconsin.

Thanks

I think my problem is I need a better antenna than what came with my BCD996P2 it sounds better and gets more reception when i put it right by a window. Can anyone recommend a good antenna that would help me, I will need an indoor antenna, I could possibly get it up in the attic over the garage if absolutely needed. Thank you for any recommendations.
