• 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:

I was interested in downloading files from RR to my ARC250 Basic. Is there a way to do this? Could someone please tell me how? I specifically need ID Lists and Freqs.

Much thanks!

You cannot use download feature with ARC250 software. At one time Butel had a Web Service Utility which would download trunking systems in csv format, but I can't locate the program in either RRWiki or Butel's homepage, so it may be not be available anymore. I have and use it occasionally, but Win96/97 will download conventional as well and its normally easier to copy/paste from them.

ARC250 does have a feature for importing trunking or conventional frequencies using the ADI (Advance Data Import) Icon.

To use, open a webpage and highlight and copy a group of frequencies then click the ADI in ARC250. This opens an import dialog, click the import from Clipboard then hit the All button then click Export to Table if you desire the frequencies in the open ARC bank. Or click Export to clipboard if you are building a file in a spread sheet such as excel.

BTW, if you have excel you can also highlight and select copy, a section of TG's and Tags from a RR page and paste into excel by right clicking in a field (A1 for example) then select Paste Special and the text option. This will allow easy editing to structure data for copy and paste into the TG part of ARC.

Alas :( . it would be much nicer if the software had full Web Import like the 246/396/996.

Edit: BTW, in ARC, clicking the (?) Help will bring up a menu which has ADI listed first. This may provide a better description of using the feature.
