• 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:

Unfortunately it seems that the UtahRadio site is currently down (evidently the domain is still active; you get a page that suggests it's being upgraded); but in the meantime, the popular Win500 user guide is gone and evidently not even available via the Wayback Machine. Google also has nothing. The original author of the document has since passed away AFAIK.

If someone comes up with a backup or gets the Wayback Machine to show it, please supply the link and we'll replace it in our wiki.

This user guide is much too valuable to lose, as it documents how to program and use it with most of the GRE/Whistler/RS Object Oriented scanners.

BINGO, Alex. I guess I didn't type the URL correctly. Thanks for that link. Now I can update all the Win500 links to point to this until / when the UtahRadio site comes back.

Nicely done and thanks..Mike

I would never look for this in the Utah forum. Can we copy the contents to the Wiki here on RR or something like that? It would also help protect from losing the data again. Thanks

I don't understand why you would think you would see this in the Utah forum (the host for this guide is/was in the UtahRadio wiki, but we had all the links in our wiki), but we've already got this covered. The changes have been applied to roughly 6 places the wiki, and message 2 from Alex5774 has the link as well.

Hopefully that will tide us over until the UtahRadio wiki has been restored.
