• 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 a PRO-2052 and have used ScanControl by scannersoft. I was just wondering if anyone has used Scat Cat full with the 2052 and how it works?

Also does anyone know of any other control software for the 2052? I want to do mostly search and log stuff for finding new freqs. in my area.

Thanks, Jeff

I use Radio Commander with my 2052 - It does an ok job

Who makes this or where can I find it? I tried googling the name, but the only thing I found was for Kenwoods and Icom radios.

Google phooey!! Just use the 2052 wiki, you'll find it here...

http://wiki.radioreference.com/index.php/Pro-2052

One thing that might bite you - some older software, like Radio Commander, might have problems with the newer 2052s. Some software will support both the older and newer versions, others might not. The wiki page has a link that describes this briefly.

Thanks!!

Thanks for the info and the links guys.

Ya, I should have looked in the wiki. I am still learning how to navigate all the resourses here on the RR site.


Now, just have to get my older PC out of the basement storage. I can use it just for the scanner and maybe as backup for the web during storms.

Thanks again, Jeff

For logging and saving new freqs and/or talkgroups, ScanControl is hard to beat. Even the $100.00 plus Scan Cat Gold won't match ScanControl for this feature. However, the free ID Tracker (also in the Wiki under the Pro-2052 page) will log and save new TG's and freqs.

I agree with Frank. When I owned a PRO-2052 I think I tried just about everything that was available for it. ScanControl seem to be the best available. The logging capabilities were great.

Thanks for the input.

I have scancontrol already. I havn't had the time to just sit down and learn it all. As soon as I get my old pc hooked back up I need to set aside a Saturday just for that.

It seems like every year that I age there is 10 minutes less in a day. :)
