• 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:

Updating the library: from a different sites?

hi, I have the new GRE PSR-800
im useing the software appz
im asuming that when you update the library it's coming from here radioreference.com
i have notice when going through the site to look up the city / town /etc. channels that there is some channels missing or not list or do you have to have a Premium Account here to get the rest / all the channels thats out there? cause i knew there was some channels in my area that wasn't listed and found the missing channels on a different site ( cityfreq.com ) etc.

so in the appz can you choose which sites you can get your library updates from?
or the appz only reconise this site when geting the updates.
i know you can import single channels which i did took me awhile.
thought maybe i over look it.
thanks for any help

The RR database only has in it what members of the forum have put in it. For my area there are no ham repeater frequencies. That means you have to find them elsewhere, put them in a scan list on the PC software, and copy them to the card. The database has a lot of good stuff in it, but not everything I need or want, so that means I did a little work on my own, searching the web and finding frequencies.

I don't mind, really, as it only has to be done the once. And all the police, fire, ambulance stuff is there so you can get it up and running right away, and add stuff that fits your own special interests later. A set of Ham two meter repeaters and a list of marine channels for some areas would be nice, of course. It would be nice if you could just add a service scan into a scan list as you can with the Uniden 346. Maybe you can and I haven't figured out how yet.

You can always become a member of RR and add what you find to the database so others won't have to do it in future.
