• 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 am missing my programming cable but I have a gps cable I bought. Does anyone know if you can use the GPS cable to program the scanner using a null modem adapter, (essentially the opposite of using a null modem adapter to use the programming cable for GPS use).

What scanner? The GPS port is for GPS use only, not for programming, on most Uniden models.

I can tell you that the data cable from a br330t will work as a gps cable on a Bcd436Hp using a null modem adapter ..

That's incorrect. All Uniden scanners with a GPS port doubles as a RS-232 Serial Port.
I stand by my statement. I never said "programming" I just wanted to correct what jonwienke said which I think is wrong "The GPS port is for GPS use only"

Correct, the GPS port is a standard serial port that can be used for PC control and sometimes other things.

I was going to post a question on this topic, and I'm glad someone else brought it up. I have a 436HP and I'd like to get data out of it to feed a display program. Will the 435Hp feed the RH-536 program? I thought I had it working some time ago, but when I've tried lately, I get an error and the program crashes. I can't get it to work using either the GPS/serial cable or the Mini USB port.

I can feed Scanner Monitor with the from the Mini USB court, but not the GpS/serial port.

Is it possible to use the GPS/serial port to get data out or did I imagine that I did that?

Correct, the GPS port is a standard serial port that can be used for PC control and sometimes other things.
