• 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 my 396, I bought ARC 396 from BuTel software, subscribed to RR (here) so I could get the database, logged on, downloaded and uploaded to the scanner and I was in business in about 15min. Without it I would have been still figuring out the manual. In fact, I still wouldn't know how to program a trunk system by hand, and I don't care to!

I hope some others on here will reply and it is possible someone will have a file for you.

Good Scannin'

To scan Dinwiddie, just plug in the frequencies in the database. They are P-25 conventional.

Once you get your 996T up and runnin' on STARS, please tell us how well it tracks the system. Some others as well as myself have noticed that the 396 isn't too good with it. This could be one of the deciding factors in whether or not I purchase one.
