    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 been using Uniden scanners and Commercial two-way radios for streaming audio for many years now. Since 2002 to be exact. I've been looking at the advertisements for the Whistler TRX-2 and I am blown away at their capabilities.

Ice cream from 3 high altitude locations and one drawback with Uniden scanners has always been front end overload that appears like intermod. It isn't really but when the front end is driven into overload it appears to be. Paging noise and bleeps and bloops and whatnot. I would 1.2 miles from a major paging transmitter and it will blotto CALFIRE. I successfully use the PAR electronics intermod filter. But to the point, How do the Whistler scanners hold up at high altitude sites surrounded by high power repeaters and fm broadcast stations, etc.?

Can anyone tell me if ProScan supports the TRX - 2?

I have about 20 feet that I've been thinking seriously about bringing over here but it's time to upgrade part of the hardware. Your learned advice will be appreciated. I said humbly I am an old hat streaming pet scanners have changed as well as the new digital formats.
