    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:

What is the best way for someone to get all the information the Radio Reference Database into any standard database format, i.e. csv or dbf? With the wealth of information in the RR databse it is very frustrating having to go through so many steps to get this information into a format to where I can easily copy and paste it to my scanner software. I am the proud new owner of a BCD396T and will be purchasing ARC396. The best meathod I can come up with is to copy the info from RR database webpages and paste into OpenOffice Calc, then save it to a dbase file. I am still working how to wittle that information down to get only the info I want to copy and paste to ARC396. If Radio Refernce were to make easily downloadable database files, I would consider being a monthly subscriber!
