• 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 a .bin file supplied by GRE for Win500 and I can't import it to Win500. It's a 66kb file that leaves me with 1 search limit frequency. I'm at a loss here. Can anyone walk me through this or is the problem with the .bin file?

Win 500 does not import .bin files.

Win 500 WILL OPEN .bin files; hit Files >> Open then select file type at the bottom of the window.

Okay then, I also have PSREdit500 and ARCPro500. Which do you suggest and how do I import the .bin file to the program. Once I have it in the computer it will easily upload to the scanner, it's just getting this far that's a bother. Thanks

Thanks Frank!

ohara89 - Try it this way: with the .bin file on your desk top and Win 500 running, drag & drop the .bin file on Win 500.

Win 500 does .bin files fine!
