• 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:

Need FreeSCAN or Win500 programming files?

For several years, I offered a programming service online for all sorts of scanners, including the BCD396T, BCD396XT, BCD996XT, Pro-106, Pro-197, GRE PSR-500, GRE PSR-600, WS1040, and a few others using older software.

The fee was $30 and included several counties in your area along with some state agencies of interest. Channels were color coded etc with all the junk channels locked out.

I was pretty good at it, and I had a theory that I was probably one of the top 5 downloaders of data from Radio Reference through FreeSCAN and Win500.

I no longer offer this service because my new job keeps me super busy, and I now have hundreds of programming files just sitting here, so I figured I might as well offer them up online for free, and if anyone feels really compelled they could send me a donation.

So if you are interested, send me an email with your home county and maybe two surrounding counties, and I will see if I have a file for you.
