• 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 want to purchase a new scanner from Radio Shack but I am not sure what to get. I want something with an Alpha/Numeric display. Is it possible to connect any other their scanners to a computer and program freqs and text display from the computer to the scanner? If so where do I get the software and such?

I am looking at the PRO-2055 or the PRO-97. Are these a good chose for what I have requested above?

Thanks,
Mike

Yes the PRO-2055/97 are exellent choices IF there are no digital systems in your area. If you need to receive digital, Radioshack sells the PRO-2096 and the PRO-96 which are also exellent scanners. All of these scanners I mentioned have AlphaNumeric displays, and can be computer programmed.
