    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.

After looking at the specs page on RS web site for the Pro-96, I found a section that mentions Remote Control Features ---Technology IR .

Anyone know about this?

Also, I bought my 96 last Sept after Katrina. Has there aver beeen a CPU upgrade or firmware upgrades? Just wondering!!!!

Thanks
Wes

Check the wiki - there has been some discussion of a DSP upgrade

GRE radios cannot be controlled by a PC - so I wonder about this 'Technology IR' - how about a link? 73s Mike

Web typo.

Yes - in this very RS section you'll see a boatload of posts referring to "new update for Pro96"

That would be the thing to check...

I would think the newer GRE radio's would, since checking the New 600 model mobile/base radio it seems that they extra space for updated firmware in the future. So you never know if they might let you control the GRE's with a PC

Coastie - what are you talking about? All GRE radios until the PSR500/600 were not computer controllable, the PSR500/600 are (and are listed as such in the appropriate threads and Wikis)
