• 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:

You bought the wrong software in the first place, Win96 only works with the Pro-96, for the Pro-528 you need ARC433 from Butel.
The subscription for RR can be gotten for $15 for 180 days.
It would have made sense for you do do your homework in the first place and not jump into buying Win96, there is a trial for it as well as for ARC433 which is what you actually going to need.

Hemitom, did you ever get a refund for your Win96?

I have had problems with his software, but appears that he doesn't have any support, he never emailed me back.
