• 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:

With all the new (and in RS case, re-issued) scanners from RS and Whistler out there, I suspect there's a good bit of confusion between the various models and whether there's a third party programming package for it. If you take a look at the Software section of

Programming Your GRE Scanner - The RadioReference Wiki

You will find a handy cross reference that will help.

It should be noted that with the exception of the PSR-800 line (Pro-668, WS-1080 and including the newer Whistler models), just about everything above that line has a third party software solution for programming.

As mentioned many times elsewhere, Whistler has refused to publish the protocols for the various PSR-800 type radios, and uses a proprietary package (called EZ-Scan) instead. This means no third party solutions can be developed for these radios. I kinda doubt this is going to change anytime soon.
