• 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:

Two Dongles or one?

Monitoring trunked systems can be done with a single dongle, but it works much better with 2. Spend an extra $20.

I use two dongles, Unitrunker and DSD+ to monitor the EBRCS system in the SF Bay Area. I think the quality is as good as my PRO 668. I've heard it can be done with one dongle but for another $20, it wasn't worth the hassle.

All depends what software you plan to use. OP25 only uses a single dongle. Most of the others can use multiple devices.
