• 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 Uniden 396 and ARC's beta ARC396Pro software that connects to the database here and sets up the systems for me. I have to admit here without this software I would not know how to program this scanner. Everything has been working great, however I took it with me into the City of Dallas today. I could not pick up any Dallas Police or Fire calls as that is what I monitor. I did check and I did not have anything locked out.

Thanks for the help and I hope this is the right forum to post this in.
