    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 just recently started programing a couple different Kenwood UHF mobiles and portables. I am using an older Pentium II laptop. I heard it is not a good idea to use a newer computer that has a faster processor speed as this can cause problems when you are trying to write the information to that radios. Is this true? Seems strange to me.....

Depends on the type of connection. If it's a serial port, the port determines the speed, not the processor. If it's proprietaty hardware, go with the manufacturer's recommendation.
