• 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 used the Win9x products forever. Just for kicks I downloaded PSREdit ... it looks identical to Win500. Is there any significant difference?

I wouldn't say they look identical. There are similarities since they both pretty much do the same function.

They both do the same basic functions, so it's up to personal preference which is best for you.

Sorry about that ... Yes, they look very similar. That's what I was getting at ...... that and what the major difference are when it comes to overall functionality, if any.

I haven't looked at Win500 for quite some time, so I really don't know... From what I've read though, I guess the biggest difference would be the remote control/monitor via the Internet that Win500 has.

Both have computer control from a computer attached to the radio, but Don extended his to allow control and monitoring over the Internet...

Beyond that, I don't know..

Win500 has the following functions/features that (I think - someone can correct me if I'm wrong) aren't in any other PSR-500/600 software...

Related to monitoring/control:
* Remote (i.e. Internet) monitoring and control, as mentioned previously. Using my TCPMux program, you can have multiple client connections to a single radio server.
* Activity logging
* Audio recording
* Internal updating of hit counts beyond radio's limit
* Internal auto-creation of new TGRP objects from Wildcard hits

Miscellaneous:
* "Notes" field for every object. Can be filled with data when downloading from RR, date/time of individual hits, and/or user text. Of course, this data isn't sent to the radio - it's within Win500 only. I primarily use it as a reference when renaming TGRPs after RR imports, where the imported "Alpha Tag" isn't descriptive enough.
* Configurable user interface (e.g. show/hide columns, re-order columns, etc.)

Things Win500 does not do that (I think) other software may do:
* Printing

The above lists aren't comprehensive comparisons.

Sounds about right. I don't have any printing in PSREdit500 either, other than an export of the bank tags...
