    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:

generic software program for 5000 or others?

I hear more and more digital stuff and also see it on my SDU5500 every day. A lot of it
comes from a nearby mountian & usually around 900s, 150s & 400s mhz areas. I know
you cant decode cellular but a lot of this stuff is just general paging, usually a tone followed
by ? signal and around 908-915 there are some with tones and others that look like digital
packets maybe.
Is there a software program that will identify and decode non encrypted digital? Im thinking
of one program thet works for different systems or even if it wont decode then one that
will identify what type of service it is? One program for all would be great but if not then
whick software program would be the best?
