    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:

Make sure you have the proper COM port set in the software. Open Windows Device Manager look under Ports and see what COM port number the cable is assigned.

I bought the download cable from Radio Shack for $30.00 but it does not want to work on Vista, it keeps saying timed out waiting for header! Any ideas on how to fix the problem. Thanks in advance......KC0JUX

The software needs to be set for the proper COM port see my posting above on doing this.
