• 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 just purchased a Pro 2096 off Ebay for 150.00 dollars, the only thing that is wrong with it is the display does not work. BTW the date code is 06A07. Besides that it works perfectly. I have no intentions of putting any money into it to have it fixed. However I was wondering if they was any programming software that featured a Virtual Control for the 2096. That way I could have the display on my PC monitor. I use BuTel ARC 500 for my GRE PSR 600 and trying to find something similar for the Pro2096. Thanks

No, there is no PC control for the Pro-96/2096 (nor for the majority of GRE built scanners). As for the display problem, I have seen it discussed here in the forums (as recently as this past week I think), take a look around it seems like the fix was easy.

It could be Contrast adjustment needed.

Change as follows:
1. Press MANUAL.
2. Press FUNC and then 9.
3. Press UP or DOWN to adjust the contrast.
4. Press ENTER to set the display contrast.
