• 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:

An article was posted on Strong Signals - and it's linked on the PRO-97 wiki page - that at some point, you would have to send the radio in to have what I would suspect would be a CPU refit.

As has been written about in numerous places - including the rebanding wiki that UPMan wrote - nothing is written in stone yet as to how RS or anyone else is going to deal with rebanding until a full system is rebanded, and the manufacturers evaluate what must be done.

We do know that Uniden won't support certain models for rebanding - what GRE/RS will really do - well, no one knows that for sure yet. Stay tuned and don't panic - yet.

Remember that they are also saying thatswhat they have done in the past. They are NOT saying thats what they will do this time. My guess is that they will not update the radios and will just come out with something different.

Support?

With todays scanners having cpu's in them, would it not fall under the Federal laws regarding support for computing equiptment? What is it like 5 years or something?

Of coarse support does'nt mean free.
