• 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:

you will need to know the paging tones used to activate the pager. You will need to connect your scanner to your computer sound card and decode the tones when they are sounded. On the back of your computer, there is a jack (mine is labeled INPUT). If you don't already have one, you need to buy a cable that will connect from the scanner's headphone jack, to the sound card jack. I can't think of the exact size of the cable off the top of my head, but it needs to fit the scanner's headphone jack. It's not hard to find either, just hit some electronics stores and shop around.

Question-
after you plug the scanner into the computer do you need a software or program?

p.s.
im not sure if this is where im sure i should post this, so correct me if i am.

You are trying to decode your department's fire pager tones? There is an official sticky forum for that.

Once we understand your goal we can help you better.

Your best bet would be to also start looking for some freq counter software so you can decode the tone freq.
