• 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:

What sort of flow control is used for the various radio programs that use the data slicer via serial port?

I have an automatic serial port switch that passes no data and shows the computer's status as RTS=High at all times. If these programs use XON/XOFF, then I need to figure out how to disable hardware flow control - either at the serial port or within the switching circuitry.

Some use DSR/DTR - although that's more for determining that the radio is powered on - not really flow control.
