Here is something I don't fully understand. Why aren't there any alternative sources of radio information other than RR for downloading purposes? I know it is possible to manually program radio systems, but owning a Whistler or Uniden requires information to be obtained from RR via internet. I don't see any other option listed in Sentinel or ARC. If competition is so wonderful, why is there no competition? It seems RR has the monopoly. I also understand that RR relies on the hypervigilant eyes of listeners. But, I would gladly pay more for another source, provided it was a good one. Any thoughts?
