• 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've just about decided on the GRE PSR500 for my first digital scanner. I've never programed a scanner with software and wondering what would be good/easy software for a computer idiot.

I'll leave it to the actual users of the software to recommend the 'easiest' however the big 3 for this scanner are ARC500, PSREdit500 and Win500. You can find links to these here (all in blue)

Object Oriented Scanner Software - The RadioReference Wiki

Notice that ARC500 and Win500 have their own user manuals (also linked in that article); to me that's a plus for a newcomer.

Maybe try doing it without software? ;) There's no better way to get to know your new radio than hands-on.

Thanks. I've heard it's a major pain to program all the P25's manually. I found out this morning that a friend has the PSREdit and he said he would guide me through it. I do understand about it being better for me to learn to do it manually though. With any luck I will have the $$ by the end of the month.Thanks again ,Mike
