• 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:

is there another trunker program that does the same thing?
In the early Bill Cheek days, Trunker/ETrunker was it. Now, there are so many siblings... Trunker/ETrunker, MTrunker, Unitrunker, WTrunker, T4Win, Trunk88, Treport, etc (sorry to the authors of any that I may have overlooked), that you are bound to get different opinions. With that said, my opinion is that Unitrunker is the latest and greatest out there right now. However, please keep in mind that some people will have other favorites because their favorite more tailor's to their need. An example would be Treport which to me, is more towards showing what a control channel is actually "talking" about opposed to following the talkgroups and radios.

EDIT: While I mentioned the "early Bill Cheek days", I am sincerely sorry for neglecting to mention Neal Fields, the leading author of Trunker/ETrunker.

i have the 996t and 396t..
Have you modified either of these to provide discriminator audio?

The reason I ask is - these programs decode the signal as provided by your radio. The signal must be discriminator audio - not speaker or headphone audio (which has been filtered).
