    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:

I have the R8500 and I'm still a novice, however, What is the main differences between the two? Besides the obvious of one being a PC version. Is the PCR2500 just as good as the 8500?

I can't help you really, except to say that I've bought a PCR2500 and while browsing the internet for info on it saw a post somewhere from a guy who said he'd sold his 8500 after buying a 2500, on the basis that he was content he wouldn't need it anymore.

Not much to go on really I know.. but it helped me decide to buy a PCR2500 as I'd originally wanted a 8500 but couldn't afford it! :)

If I can find a link to it I'll post it.

The main difference is that the PCR2500 is actually two receivers built into one enclosure. Performance should be about equal.
