    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:

Pro 97

Hi,

I bought my first scanner (pro 97) a couple of months ago from a person on this site. By joining this site, I have learned so much in a short time. Fisrt thing to do is get the WIN97 program as hugger stated. This program is integrated with this site's database. This means you can simply find the county in Oregon and import the files directly to win97, and then upload them to your scanner via a pc cable. The $7.50 this site charges for this upload feature is invaluable, and that is for 90 days. Plus, its a good way to give back to this site. Just my opinion, but if it wasn't for the people on this site and it's database, I would have pulled my hair out trying to learn how to use my scanner to it's capabilities.

Good Luck and Have Fun
