• 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 just purchased the PRO96 and downloaded the WIN-96 demo program. I can't make sense of either of the two. Can anybody direct a scanner illiterate person to someone who can program the scanner with Fire and PD channels in Arizona? Fee or Free, whatever gets the job done.

ok, but I think I am in over my head. I don't even know how to program the thing. So I guess I am looking to pay someone to either do it or step by step me through it with the win96 data files.

What's more important than learning to program with the software is doing the programming manually. If you don't know the radio and you are out on the road and want to program a frequency or two in an new city, then how would you know what to do. Set aside some time to "goof" with the radio, pick a start point in the middle of a bank and just start pushing buttons to enter frequencies and learn how that works. In other words keep it simple. Later on you should learn the software. It really is the most simple program in the world, all of the WIN family programs. It took me only an hour of poking in stuff before I had all 1000 channels loaded up.

It doesn't have to be complicated, just sit back and enjoy. Frustration should be removed from your dictionary and replaced with fun.
