    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.

I too am new to the Apco-25 Arkansas WIreless Information Network(AWIN) system and am anxious to get my PRO96 scanner to the max level it's designed for. I get lost when trying to program it.
I am interested in Crawford and Sebastian Counties, State Police and Federal frequencies. I have the Radio Shack interface cable but don't know the best way to get what I need for my scanner.
I would appreciate someone making the ordeal simple enough to understand.
I know how to program frequencies and put them i numerical order but when it comes to talkgroups, group ID's and so on.
ANY help will be appreciated !!!

I agree with mciupa, go Win96. In the mean time click on the programming shortcut link below my signature. The 96 shortcut is in the listing.
