• 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:

That link is wrong as bezking has said. There really is no need to even go there. Once you put your username and password into the software itself as long as it's working there that's all that matters.

First, both of the above links are incorrect (but will work). The correct link is:
http://www.radioreference.com/apps/xml1.1/?sl=1

Second, (despite n2mdk's poor advice above) the reason you use it, is to eliminate firewall, security software, computer, etc., problems first. If you can get a list of states in an XML document using the link, then you look to the software interface next.

The computer <--> scanner interface has nothing to do with the software <--> RR Web Service interface. They are two separate operations.

You need to select your State, FL, in the software, can you do that. The web link is just to test your ability to connect with that link. You need to connect to the database with the software not the browser.

Using ARC433 choose the Internet Menu and go from there.
Choose whichever type of system, conventional or trunked, then your State, County and which
systems you want to download.

The software is just the drivers for the cable. What OS are you using.
windows xp. since i sent u my last question i managed to install the driver, all seems to be operating as advertised. all that remaines is to figure out the transfer from computer to scanner. tnx. frank wb2zrv
