• 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 have paid for the subscription to download onto my scanner. I installed the software but when tells to choose the place there is no icons there to choose for where to put it. I can't even see where to get the download I paid for besides the trial one.

I believe RR has recently changed the way their database works, so you have to have the latest version of the software to download from the database. What kind of scanner and software are you using?

don't know what softwear your useing, but if you download Freescan, and go into file download, choose either conventional, or trunked data, and put your information into the RR section it will let you download what ever information you want to the scanner, but you first have to have the computer connection and usb connector to hook up to the scanner. If your connected right it should work fine, i use it almost daily...

We need to know what scanner model you are programming, what software you are using and ideally what agency you are trying to program. However, generally speaking, the process is to use the software to "import" frequencies from the RR database and then from that same software, upload the programming information to the scanner. The steps of importing have differences depending on the type of system you want to program, and the software/scanner being used.
