• 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:

For the newer generation of scanners, it would be great to have a remote control.

Even if it was a wired remote. I'm thinking, and if I was smart enough about this stuff, I'd build it.

A six foot cable to the mini usb or serial, with a hold/resume button.

I am constantly hitting the scan button when i don't want to listen to the channel the scanner stopped on...

There are a couple of windows remotes that you could probably program to work with your scanning software to do the trick... Keyspan used to make a media remote, start there...
