• 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 never knew that store was there. I'll have to stop by and check it out also. As far as programming, it is pretty simple to do it if you have a cable to connect to and program from your computer. I use the Uniden 996t which can listen in APCO-25 and I programmed my entire hometown in minutes using the free bcTool software. There is also freeware out there for other major scanner makes and models.

Scanner shop - HRO - Programming

The guys at HRO will throw in a local program for you for free.

Be advised it is not really quite perfect though.

I believe on PPD they have a tg or a cc wrong, I forget. They also miss some cool things every valley scanner enthusiast would want in their program.

For anyone using a PSR scanner I would be happy to share my WIN500 file (bin file should work with any of the main software programs).

Of course every scanner guy seems to have his own unique programming needs, but for a newbie intimidated by the complexity, maybe it would be helpful.
