• 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 have obtained a EFJohnson Viking 800 MHz radio with model number 242-9655. I am in need of programming software and cable. This will be used for our local Interopability system. So I need to be able to reprogram the radio while enroute or at a scene. Thanks.

I certainly hope you're not driving while attempting to program a radio.
I once knew a fellow who attempted that...........once.

Why not obtain the frequencies and program them before-hand.

As for the software and cable, you'll probably have to locate the nearest EFJ dealer and go from there. It's a DOS program and not very hard to work. The cable and data invertor is what makes up 9/10ths of the programming.
Good Luck.
