• 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:

WS1010: Programming Cable

Jun 11, 2015

Will the Radio Shack GRE Whistler FTDI USB programming cable 20-546, listed on Valley Enterprises' website, work for programming the WS1010?

It Includes the adapter to program both mono jack (PC/IF) and stereo jack scanners and their website does list it for the WS1010. Then, why am I asking? My experience with other programming cables for use on other equipment has taught me to consult experts like those who frequent this forum and may have used the cable in question. I just need the WS1010 to monitor several analog frequencies and I don't relish going the manual programming route.

What software would be best for use on this scanner?

There are only 2 known, apart from Scancrap (I think), programs that would handle the WS1010 (which is a rebadged GRE PSR-100); ARC404 and PSREdit100. I can't get the URLs due to work restrictions, but a quick google search will bring them up
