• 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:

first you can keep your sanity, because if you try to program the frequencies, talkgroups and names by hand you will go nuts.

second, it will permit you to upload frequency information from the database here at radio reference directly into WIN96 and on into your scanner.

it will also let you open up some frequencies that the scanner will not receive now. it will not open up cellphone frequencies.

you must be a paid subscriber to this site to use the web import from here to your scanner. If you don't want to do that then you can access the database and write them for entry.
