• 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:

No I did not..sorry...this got interesting though. When they caught him he had a "police radio". The comment made on the air was " He heard metro was here, and he got scared.." Dare I nominate him for smart criminal of the year??

Maybe "Knuckle-head" of the year !

If you need "free" recording software - I can point you in the right direction !! Wavepad is an awesome piece of recording software... Check out Wave Pad here.

Buy an audio cord from Radio Shack or other electronics store that has a stereo 1/8 inch plug at both ends. Plug one end into your microphone or line in jack on the sound card of your computer. Plug the other end into the headphone jack of your scanner - and there you go !

Best to use the line in jack if you have it on your sound card.

Hopefully your computer will allow you to listen on the computer speakers while you have your scanner plugged into your computer. If not, you could always purchase a "Y" splitter where one set of plugs goes to your computer for recording while the other set goes to your speakers.
