• 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:

Does anybody know of any software like Butel that runs on OS X? I have not had any luck searching on google.

Thanks!

Unfortunately, scanner enthusiasts and amateur radio people seem to be mostly stuck in the virus and spyware-laden Windoze world.
If you have a new Intel-based Mac, you can run Parallels or another program that let's you run Windoze software, and they do support addressing the USB port to your scanner.
If your Mac is running a Power PC chip, you can use the MS PC emulator.
Of course, you will need to use a ton of anti-this-and-that software in the background to protect your Mac from all the crap that's out there that infects Windoze-based PC's!
I keep praying that Don Starr will come out with Mac-based software for scanners.
