• 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:

Before we can help you, a little more information on what you are trying to do would be appreciated. I understand you need a serial port to USB adapter. Are you trying to hook your scanner up to be computer controlled? If that's the case, Make and Model of scanner you're trying to hook up to would help as well.

A USB or serial port isn't needed to provide a feed, to provide a feed you'll need to use an audio cable to connect the earphone/headphone/line out jack on your scanner to your computer's line in or mic in input.
