• 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:

This would be fantastic if RR could get something worked out to allow its members acess to an app that worked like scan cat etc etc or see them have there own software built that worked with the radios.

I love how when suggestions are made the old timers are quick to jump to a defensive stance automatically. Its ok I understand. my SUGGESTION still stands. Just another idea to give more useful items to those that sub.

Uncalled for reply, Wayne was correct, web import (the wheel) has been around for some time with both Butel and Don Starr's software.

Maybe my question was misunderstood. I only meant instead of a premium sub having to go out and purchase a software at 30 bucks to program ones scanner it would be neat if RR offered some app to do this free of charge. Or a discount with the software makers. Im just looking for added items to the RR subs. Would seem like a great addition.

I don't think any of us misunderstood your meaning. Your suggestion would drive the subscription price up.

500 bucks for a scanner and worry about 30 for software. How you going to get your suggestion into the scanner without software?

You have already expressed your opinion elsewhere as to how outrageous you think $7.50 for 90 days of subscription is. So to begin with, your suggestion is observed with that background. Especially since you back that opinion up by not subscribing (at least as of the time of this post.) You don't even bother to respond to Lindsay's question in that thread.

This site's purpose is to provide data, it is not to compete with the software developers out there.

If you develop a working generic download application, I am sure we will be happy to host a copy of it for download for all the members to use.

First off just because I have an opinion on the sub cost of this site doesnt mean my opinion on other things are not valid and dont matter.

Secondly I didnt realize he had asked me a question on that thread. Thanks for pointing it out to me.

Public posts are subject to differing opinions. Sorry, but that's internet life. I did misunderstand your question though, but Lou hit it on the head.
