• 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:

Hi Folks,

I've had the GRE PSR500 for a few years now, and I've always been unsure if I have it's channels/banks optimally setup for MARCS in my area (I'm in Dublin). If you happen to have a more-or-less up-to-date save from ARC-500 or Win500 that you'd be willing to share, I'd be grateful if you could post it.

While I'm at it, every once in a while I travel down 23 down to Scioto County, and again, I'm just not sure how to program this thing to make sure I'm getting everything I should be. Should I try to put in all sites between here and there (which, with talkgroups, seriously pushes the memory limits of this scanner), or am I going to be better off setting up a separate V-Scanner profile for home, on the road between the two locations, and the destination?

I miss the days of my Bearcat 140.
(Holy #%*@, I just realized that was just about 25 years ago!)
