• 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:

Wasn't really sure about where this should go, so I'm posting it right here. I resdie in the Greatter Seattle area and enjoy monitoring police, fire, and ambulance comms.

Equipment-wise, I have a BC340CRS in the storage that I bought when I didn't know which scanner to get. I previously had a RS PRO 164 but didn't like because it had those banks, couldn't do digital, and just wasn't urban area friendly. Now I own a BCD396XT portable scanner with wich I am very happy. I look forward to being a member of these forums.

And to the administrators, feel free to move this if I put it in teh wrong place by mistake.

Thank you.

With the 396XT it might be a good idea to download FreeScan software (note the link appears down right now). Become a Premium Member it is not expensive I think $30 for a year $15 for six months. Then if you have a computer and serial/USB adapter you can download everything you need from the site.

That's what I did I just let my subscription expire but it's easier to just download from the site.

Thanks everyone for such a warm welcome. Truth is, I made this account years ago, and didn't even know I could use it to access the forums. Had I known that, I would've started posting a long time ago.
