• 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:

The PRO-74 is not a trunktracker, the best I remember. To get anything on the Richardson EDACS system just program the Richardson Frequencies as normal. It may be hard to follow complete conversation or communications. Richardson also uses 868.6125 as a Fire Toneout frequency

Radio Shack and Uniden, both make good scanners. For trunking you can except to pay anywhere from $150.00 to $500.00+ for a scanner. Check out Radio Model Information of the wiki section. For a Radio Shack model you might look at the Pro-97 / Pro-2055 and the PRO-96 / Pro-2096 (digital). Use an outside antenna to increase what you can receive.

I got the Uniden-396T
Have you downloaded any software for it as yet?
There are a number of files for the DFW area in Uniden UASD software (free download) in the 396's Yahoo group.

What system(s) are you interested in, other than Richardson?
