• 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:

You need 2 things - a USB cable, the link for which is here (see the Whistler section of...)

Connecting scanners via USB - The RadioReference Wiki

(links are always blue, BTW)...and software. There are 3 packages (nothing free, I'm afraid, although they all have trial periods) that are commonly used - Win500, PSREdit500 and ARC500. Links for each are here...

Object Oriented Scanner Software - The RadioReference Wiki

And at the bottom of the article below, you'll find links to user guides for ARC500 and Win500

Keep that last link handy - it has links that you will find useful...Mike
