• 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:

As I wrote on SS:

I think ARC898 does this. With Scan Control, you need to re-download and install, but at least you get your acknowledgment fairly quickly, as I recall (I've had SC registered for some time now). Oh and by the way, you do know that IDTracker also works with the 898, and it's free....

Since you are Canadian I don't think you can even purchase software at uniden.com ...

Take a look at ARC898, my key arrived within 20 seconds...

I ordered ARC898 about a month ago from Butel. You can download it on-line, and the KEY arrived via email in about an hour.

I also have ScanControl, but prefer Butel's software for the BC898T.
