• 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:

I now have Windows 7 computers. In the past, I have computers with Windows XP. I would like to record scanner radio traffic using voice activated software so I do not have to listen to silence when nothing is going on. I have used a program called VoxToFile version 2 by Iain Mccaulay (c)2006 which is a freeware. It creates a new file every hour and can schedule recording an event. Sometimes, I record stuff being broadcast online. Now that I am switching to a newer computer, I an wondering what software other people are using, any issues and if they had to add a separate sound card.

I should have also mentioned that you can control what data is logged with each hit.
Here's what I typically use.

154.8000, 355, Broome County, Sheriff F-1, 98 Private Feed2, 154.8000 C103.5, 01548000

By the way, this is what's logged on a Close Call Hit.
I only care about frequency. That's the last command in the list, without a decimal point.
In this case 118.600.

, 494, , , , ‡ˆ, 01186000



Here are the Radio Setting selections to do that.

can this program record two scanners, each scanning different channels at the same time? Like one scanner on dispatch and one on fireground? Does the scanners gets plugged into the sound card as the microphone or something else?

I use ID TRACKER III (freeware) with my 996XT.

It has a segment recording option that allows playing back seperate transmissions.

I like that because I can spot the "rodger" traffic because its only a couple seconds long vs. something more interesting.

Scanner Recorder Pro, I use and it is by far the best scanner recording software I have ever used. I HIGHLY recommend this software!
