• 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:

Ok guys, I have a Pro 97. I am considering getting a cable and downloading the free softwares to program it up. Rght now it IS programmed, but I'd like to do it with the software to neaten it up a little bit.

I do not fully understand trunking, and I'm sure the software will help me with it. My question is, If I use the software to program my scanner, is there anyway I can save the information that "goes into" the scanner, and send it to someone who can look at it, and tell me if I've programmed it right?

Or is using the sofware fool-proof? Cause I'm a fool.... and I dont know hardly anything about trunking. Hahaha....

With win97 you can save as many differant files as you want. Just give them differant names.
Win97 is by far the best one out there. Free for 30 days then $25, but well worth it.

Almost. You need to be aware that anytime you upload to the scanner you write over ALL channels in each of the ten banks - ALWAYS.

If you use the great Win97 program the first thing you should do is download the factory programming from the scanner and save your download using some name such as "Archive" or the like. Save the same download a second time (a 'Save As') using a name like "Working".

Make whatever changes you like to "Working" and upload your changes to the scanner. Don't ever alter "Archive" and you'll have a way to restore the original programming of your scanner.
