• 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 am in Lima Ohio, Allen County. I would like to only monitor (on my PC) a couple of Law Enforcement frequencies without having to monitor EMS, Fire, etc. Is this possible? I have a Premium Subscription

I'm not a premium subscriber but I think it is possible to filter what you download from the database by agency, such as Law, Fire, Medical, etc. If your program supports downloading from the database check and see if it can do this.

If you mean program a scanner for only those frequencies of interest, then sure, it's possible. Using software to download (as satosi was indicating), you'd pick only those items that you wanted.

However, from your comment "on my pc", if you meant listening to one of the scanner feeds, then the answer would be no. Feed content is whatever the provider has chosen to stream. The only control you have is to choose a live audio feed that most closely matches your interests. However, there may only be one choice covering the geographical area you want to monitor. If so, you have no other options.
