• 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:

Anyone have a Pro 2054? I checked the RR wiki on the 2054 and couldn't find the specific's. Does anyone know if their is free programming software out there? Does it support Alpha Tags? Is 50 dollars a goods deal for this scanner?

I can't check Yahoo groups at work....Thanks

No alpha and no software that I know of, $50 is not bad for a usable scanner though. It just depends on what you need, if you don't see yourself needing trunking then it might work for you.

The 2054 was really a flop for RS though, it's a shame.

....and the 2052 was still selling in 2007 where the 2054 was at full price for only a short time before being put on it's extended clearance. The 2052 was and still is a great scanner with many capabilities where the 2054 was just behind the times before it was ever released.

The 2054 was ordered for RS from GRE as a way for GRE to use up some excess parts. It was never meant to be a long running model. Much like the 2051 was ordered due to a contractual obligation to Uniden.
