• 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:

While I don't know about using a USB cable for this rx - it's so old that USB wasn't even around when this radio was new - I can help a little with the software

Go back to the AOR forum and read my response to your query in the new to the AOR3000a message. The wiki page I gave you has several software packages that should work with that old receiver (I've even written a few reviews, altho they aren't specifically for the 3000, the software's capabilities are well laid out). Probably the best software to get - and it even runs under XP, according to a recent MT review - is RadioMax. It will vastly increase the number of available memory channels you can scan, and may even speed it up a bit.

Anything in a message that's in blue is a link. Click on it and you'll be taken there.

In fact, there's a small Yahoo group for the 3000 series receiver that's also on the wiki. You might try there to get your USB question answered. It may well be your best bet is to get an el cheapo old laptop that has a real serial port at a hamfest, but perhaps there's another solution 73s Mike
