I think it would be helpful for many to post/attach ARC396 data files.

I know the program and download RR database info - but it often the RR text needs to be tediously cleaned up to make it work right.

I'm personally interested in creating a full state highway police profile - with different groups for different sets of states - like the NE states, Mid-West, etc. I'm guessing that would take a lot of work - but if someone else has done something similar that would be awesome.



I'm sure there are plenty of other people that are interested in other types of data profiles/systems too.

There are so many - in fact, maybe too many - places where files can be had. The 396 yahoo group has several; and I'd also look at your desired state's yahoo group- if it has one. I'd also check the ARC396 yahoo group, as well as anyone who has set up their own webpages - sometimes they too have files.

Do some homework. You can start by using the wiki which has numerous links - anything in blue that has a small box with an arrow going out of it is an external (to the wiki) page. Anything in blue is a link here...

It's by no means complete, but it's a start.

Have you tried posting in the state you are interested in? I've done that to where I was going on vacation and have received files without really asking.
