    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'm about to order a PSR-410. I do not need much of a scanner, but do want alpha tags, so this seems to be the best cheaper one out there.

I don't have many frequencies to enter, and no trunked systems.

Most of what I need is:
Various ham simplex and repeater outputs 2m (maybe a half dozen)
Various ham simplex and repeater outputs 440 (another half dozen)
Local FD dispatch (1 vhf)
Local FD tac (2 vhf, 1 uhf)

and that is about all. I don't see spending seventy bucks (cable + software) to put in 16 frequencies (including alpha tags and PL).

Would it be that difficult?

No sweat at all with the frequencies in hand. I was in the same boat with a similar scanner in order to get the alpha tags.... they are great and makes listening much more user friendly.
