• 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:

Starsoft is a delight for my needs. I've used win92, win93, win95, win97, and the win-converter and they always work great.

I've not heard too many good things about scancat.

You can try win96 for 30 days before you buy it to make sure it works for you.

Scancat lite does work. But it takes a lot of time in uploading to the scanner especially the 2096.

I went with Win96 overall.

I am a real idiot when it comes to computers and downloading, etc. but the Starrsoft program is very easy to use and works flawlessly on my 2096. I can't imagine trying to program this beast of a scanner without Starrsoft.
