• 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:

I have an RS 164 and running Windows 7, my data cable is an RS20-047. Im needing the cable driver for my new laptop. It can not be found here GRE America Inc.
Any help would be great!

Turn the radio on, plug the cable into the scanner, and then into the pc. Windows will find the correct driver. Go to control panel, click on Device Manager, and see what USB port the scanner is on. In your programming software, make sure the ports match.
You're ready to go.

The one You need is a setup executable, and You don't unzip it.
Here's a pic of the one You need.
