• 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:

Butel did have a note on their site indicating it would be released in July, but it has since been removed.

yes, I did pre-order. It stated at one point that I'd have access to the beta software before it is released. Just wondering when the beta for pre-orders will start.

Are you looking for wild answers, or do you want a definite answer? Try asking the source directly if you want a definite answer, instead of asking a bunch of people who have no idea.

I'm sure as soon as Grommert has a functional program it will be available. Til' then I'm sure he is really busy.

Ok. But he isn't asking for what you may have seen on a website, but is no longer there. He is asking for "when the beta will be available".

The only person who knows that is he who is releasing it. Ask him instead of people who can only guess.

I was told to contact Scanner Master the first week of July. The final product should be available in August.

I was hoping Gommert may have been lurking and had some insight as to when the beta would be available.

I wasn't sure if the beta was available yet or not when you pre-order. I received a confirmation from PayPal that my payment was received but no confirmation from Butel for my order.

Pick up the USAD software from Uniden. It is free for 996T users and seems to work OK.

To be honest, without the software, I don't know how anyone could program the thing.

The beta is out as most who were looking for it likely knows. To my knowledge it is only available to those of us who have prepaid for the full version. Seems to work just fine at this point. While the UASD is ok, and free - I still prefer the Butel products. I use ARC780, ARC396 and now ARC996. Everyone has their own preferences of course.

I ordered directly from Butel and received the link to the download the other day. I'd suggest you email them directly and ask about it.

It figures Scannermaster wouldn't have a clue......I had a bad experience with them last week when ordering over 1200.00 worth of scanners so I got pissed and gave Grove the sale...but I did end up ordering a few things from Scannermaster one being the software for the 996T and now I'm reading the beta is out and of course I got no email from Scannermaster.....I, like many prefer the Butel software considering I have it for my 330T and 396T....

Scannermaster is right since there is no ARC996 version released yet.

We did sent a beta to selected customers but is for testing only, next week we will release a version for customers that pre-ordered.
