Thanks for putting this together. I won't be able to attend, but think this is a great idea. Hope there will be another one.

I had a great time as well. Great to meet some of you again, as well getting to see some new faces. Below I have placed some links to various pieces software, and other info that I spoke with people about.

ARMER user manual. Great overview of the ARMER system, and how it works. Even talks about the radios used on the system, and as well some of the software used.

ID Tracker - A nice software package used to monitor and log radio traffic, as well as control some Uniden and Radio Shack/GRE scanners. Also allows recording of radio traffic. Best of all it's free. Please note there are 3 different versions, based on the scanner you have. Find the newest version that works for your scanner. Each new version seems to be a major improvement from the previous version, adding functionality and interfacing with newer scanners.
Baton Rouge Area Scanning - ID Tracker

Freescan - Like ID Tracker, Freescan allows you monitor, log and record radio traffic, as well as control 11 Uniden Scanners (not for Radio Shack/GRE scanners). Freescan also allows you to program these 11 unidens scanners. Enables you to import information from Radio Reference (requires paid premium subscription to Radio Reference) into your scanner. This is what I personally use to quickly program my 396XT. To download, click on "Downloads" along the left side of the page. Like ID Tracker, this one is also free.
FreeSCAN - Sixspot Software

Seeker 800-900MHz antenna. - Not the shortest antenna, but it does work great for me.
Radioware & Radio Bookstore - Seeker 800 MHz Duckie Antenna

GRE (Radio Shack) 800Mhz antenna. - Not sold in stores any longer, but can be purchased from Scannermaster.com. Many I have spoken with like this one. Shorter than the Seeker, and cheaper.
GRE 800 MHz Rubber Antenna

I hope this helps. Let me know if there is anything that I might have missed. I invite others to post links to areas of interest to our group.

Until next time folks.

Sounds like this antenna may be the answer I have been looking for. I have tried to order one but have found the vendor to be unresponsive. First no answer on the phone. Then no answer on the fax. Finally the fax went through but no answer from the vendor! Sounds like one guy working out of his basement - doesn't give one much confidence! Has anyone else had any experience with them?

Thanks!
