• 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:

Skip it, from all I've heard - you want to get Scan Control; it properly supports both the old and new firmware versions of the 2052. From all the scuttlebutt, that seems to be the way to go. Older packages like Scan Pro don't always work correctly - or sometimes not at all - with the new firmware.

A nice feature is that if you decide to upgrade to the Uniden scanners - including the BCD996 and BCT15 (programming support is supposed to be released this weekend)
the same software will work with the 2052 as well as those, and a great many other Uniden scanners as well.

Control/Monitoring for the 996 and 15 will come in the next release.

I have not heard much good about Scancat Lite Plus or the Trunkstar packages. I also understand that IDTracker supports the 2052, although not completely.
