• 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 picked up a 433 today and the reception, even with the stock antenna, is superior, even to my 528. I can hear the NYPD crystal clear from indoors from the Nassau-Suffolk border.

Even better, I used ARC433 and now have my 433 set exactly the same as my 528!

I agree with you, my pro-433 has great ears on it. I was amazed at how well it picks stuff up. I programmed mine by hand, how easy is the software to use and is there a free trial period. I would like to try it before I buy it. I've hooked a small external speaker to the 433 and it sounds very good. I'm very happy with it.

The software is ARC-433. It can be found at www.butel.nl . There is a 30-day trial period, and I use the RadioShack 20-047 USB cable with it. The software is super-easy to use, especially if you have a Premium Subscription, because you can import directly from the Database to your scanner.

Thank you for the info, I already have the pc cable from RS for my Pro-164. I believe it's the same cable and it will work. I will give it a try and see how it goes with the software.
