• 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:

For what radio? Most software is radio-specific.

I see you have a 785. ARC250 from BuTel (Scanner Master has it) and ProScan are probably the 2 big players for that radio. Why not download a demo and see which one you like better?

You have another challenge - connecting your scanner and PC, since newer PCs don't have serial ports. Fortunately many off the shelf models work fine, from past reports - and we have some information on a few of them, along with using Windoze Device Manager to fix issues documented here in our wiki (anything in blue is a link)

Connecting scanners via USB - The RadioReference Wiki

best regards..Mike
