• 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:

My brother-in-law is an ex highway patrol dispatcher. He has polio and is currently totally housebound. His major entertainment is listening to police/sheriff/highway patrol and the state emergency system on his analog scanner. He is in Sweetwater county and they have gone to a digital broadcast. I need some hands on help in Rock Springs. I would like to get him something like a PSR 600 programed for his local area. He does not have a computer and is not computer literate. I need someone in that area to work with me to help him. Are there any clubs there that I can contact? He is a person in need. I need help to help him. Thanks Dan

If he is on a tight budget, I would suggest considering the refurb Pro-197. I have a new one and a refurb, can't tell the difference and the refurb sells for $299 online. Just a thought. Cheers.

If he can get a uniden digital scanner I have a "sweetwater co / Wyolink "digital file on my laptop with the cables so I can program it for him in about 5 min or so the next time I go to RS.
