you will need a 1/8" mono or stereo male to male patch cord for the audio. If you have a DB9 serial port on the computer, you will not need to buy a cable for that, it comes with the DB9 serial cable. If you only have USB ports on your computer, you will need a USB to Serial cable or need the Uniden USB cable (sold separately).

If it is your own phone number, you can (but it is a bad idea for many reasons). If it is a company's published phone number, should be no problem. If it is some other private individual's number, you probably shouldn't without their express permission.

If you need to send someone your phone number, it is best to send them a private message.

It is OK, but it has been quite some time since it was last updated. I prefer FreeSCAN.

Exclamation

That's what i was thinking Paul on the Verizon forums we can put Verizon's company number for customers that ask Questions and we then refer it to them for further help if they have an issue

But personal Numbers. Full names and addresses get Moderated rather Quickly). My self if i see it i will flag it to be pulled to protect the individual that didn't realize the consequences..

You will need an audio cable to run from the record-out jack on the scanner to your line-in on your PC sound card. No audio is sent on the data cable.

Read about it here Setting Up your Broadcasting Station

Also the Easier-to-Read Manual will become your new best friend.
