• 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:

i own both of these models as well as the 310 and 410.i have been trying to get familiar with DSD and Unitrunker by doing some reading.my question is what formats can be monitored using the PC/IF port in combination with a laptop and SDR type programs? i have read that the port is only useful for certain types.any help would be appreciated.thanks.i apologize if this post is in the wrong section.

If you are asking if you can receive NXDN, DMR, or ProVoice through the PC/IF using a PC and DSD with any of the four scanners, not possible. You would need to tap the radio/radios to do so.
If they were a GRE800, WS1080/1088, then you could go through the earphone via a menu change.
