Default Arc-500

I was looking at the Butel web page a little bit ago and I don't see whether it will have the history logging function. I assume it will, but I will keep watching to make sure. I have a Uniden Bearcat BCD996T now and I use it with the ARC996PRO. I particularly enjoy checking the history log to check for activity on either conventional frequencies or trunked system talk groups.

Why bother starting yet another sticky thread when the product isn't even been released yet...

Oh I don't know maybe he doesn't want 10 different ARC-500 "When is it coming out, what features, etc" threads and as you can see above you someone already has a question about the software and without this sticky would have most like started a thread for it anyhow... Lets let Dubbin worry about Dubbin, m'kay :-)

Without this sticky I bet he would have never asked... The only reason I said anything is because the amount of sticky threads in these forums is ridicules.

I sure could prove you wrong on that one but as usual you wouldn't want to be proved wrong.

This topic was started due to a request by PM from Butel. and also to prevent more threads created for the topic.

Send me a PM with every sticky you think is useless, and I will look at them and discuss it with the other mods, hows that?

I generally avoid making remarks in threads dedicated to competing software (since I cannot offer unbiased comments), but this is a little disturbing...

A Google search for "psr-500 software" shows the BuTel ARC500 pre-order page (http://www.butel.nl/orderinfo/priceinfo_500.html) as the second result. Within that page is the tag:
<meta name="description" content="ARC96 comp. with Win96 - data management software for the PRO-96 and PRO-2096 digital trunking scanners">
(It's the above text that shows up in Google's little synopsis of the page)

Strangely, the Win96 web page's source contains:
<meta name="description" content="Win96 - data management software for the PRO-96 and PRO-2096 digital trunking scanners">

BuTel needs to fire their webmaster. The replacement should edit the ARC500 pre-order page, removing the text that a) seems to have been copied/pasted from my web site, b) references a totally unrelated radio, and c) seems to mention an ARC product that never existed.

Hmmm.... that "funny" meta tag also shows up in http://www.butel.nl/orderinfo/priceinfo_433.html

Danm, that is real messed up on Butel's Website manager's part.

Perhaps European ethics are different than those in the USA.

Default Arc-500

I am still trying to determine if the ARC-500 will program BOTH the GRE PSR-500 AND the PSR-600. So far it appears as if it will. Also, I am wondering if there will be BOTH a Basic and a Pro version similar to ARC996, but it appears as if there will simply be one version.

My beta 0.8 has expired and there does not appear to be a newer version at the link. Are we about to see version 1.0 released?

ARC500 programs BOTH the PSR-500 and the PSR-600, see our website for details.
