• 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:

Nothing to compare to Win96. ScanCat Lite will partially program a Pro-96 and many other scanners. However, ScanCat will never be able to program any trunking tables to the scanner nor will it be able to program any new tables when rebanding comes around. Win96 will.

I would stay away from scan-cat lite for the pro-96. I tried it on my pro-2096, just because I already had the software. It would take almost 45 minutes to upload to the scanner.

I agree with Frank, nothing really compares to win96 for that scanner.

sflyersguy...Is it a Radio Shack scanner you are trying to program? If the answer is yes, have you tried to program the scanner using WinXX software?
If the answer is no to the 2nd question, then you can't go wrong using WinXX software.
