• 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:

Ok, I am willing to buy someone in Somerset county your favorite beer, wine, or liquor to help me with my scanner. I did get a file for Somerset county, but I tried importing from RR and uploading to my scanner and I screwed everything up.

I again took the Somerset file and downloaded it and it works ok now, but I really don't understand how I can add banks. I have banks 1-5 and 9 dedicated and I tried to load Troop C North to bank 6 and got messed up!

So, before my husband kills me, can someone help?

Thanks,
Sue

I'm here in Branchburg, where are you?

I'm intimately knowledgeable with the Pro-96 & Win96. I'll make you up a memory file for the local conventional PD's and the county trunk system to get you started.

WA2ZDY asked me to give you hand, and I'd be happy to. I've just been on the road for work recently, and didn't want to offer until I knew I would be available...

I can certainly help you with the pro-96. Its not that hard once you do it a few times. I'll walk you through the steps so you'll be able to do it yourself in the future, to stay current with updates and everything.

I'm in Ocean County though...where are you?

Thanks guys for the help. I'm in Somerset County, Franklin Twsp. That would be great if someone could make me an updated file. I've been playing with the web import and RR, but I keep wiping everything out. I know I don't know what I'm doing.

The Win96 software is about as much help as the scanner manual is.

Thanks again for the help.

Send me a private message with what you want in each bank, and I'll get it put together within the next 24-36 hours (click on my name above in this post).

Make sure you include an e-mail address so I can attach the .p96 file to a message in a zip file (easiest way to do this).
