• 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:

Does this software exist?

I use a Uniden BR-330T scanner. I am looking for software that will scan a range, log any hits for frequencies that I do not have programmed, and cross reference those to radioreference.com, so that when it logs a hit for say 450.20, it then checks radio reference and tells me what that is.

Additionally, I have found many programs that log frequencies for the BR330T. The issue I have is, particularly in the low bands, it will hit something thats just noise, and it wont go past it, because the signal never closes squelch. So I can kick off a scan and goto bed, and it stuck on the same frequency! It would be great if it was smart enough to log the frequency and then move on after a time period, can any of the packages do this?

Thanks,

Brian

There is nothing I know of that would pause a scanner, log onto RR and check the database. That would be an interesting app, though I'm not so sure that, if the traffic really got heavy, that you could keep up with the lookups vs. the traffic being logged on the scanner.
