• 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:

Two computers and a BC296C. I also have a Radioshack Pro-2055 out of the picture that I plug in sometimes if I'm trying to watch a frequency while scanning with the BC. I actually made the line-in cable myself using two pairs of old headphones and a soldering iron (because paying Radioshack is overrated). I would just hook the line-in to my laptop but it doesn't take line-in and I'd just hook the radio to the desktop but it isn't my desktop (and its on vista).

It's nice to hear the radio out of a REAL set of speakers and be able to record if need be.
