• 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:

My new BCD396XT and BuTel ARC-XT-Pro software arrived Friday. I immediately printed the comprehensive operating manuals for both (76 pages for the software, 273 pages for the scanner) and placed them in binders. They certainly were intimidating! Having used both Butel and RR before, I decided to give it a go without cracking the manuals. In less than an hour I installed the software, downloaded 10 trunked systems and 8 conventional systems from RR, installed everything onto the scanner, and had it all up and running in Virtual Control mode. I still have a lot to learn, but that will come in time. Many thanks to BuTel and RR for simplifying what would have otherwise been a monumental task.
