• 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:

Whistler WS1040

Aug 26, 2018
Anyone using a WS1040? I just received one as a birthday present and I am trying to listen to the trunked system in the area. Using Win500 I was able to dump Isabel and all of the talkgroups. So far I have only heard police once. I have an analog scanner scanning the voice channels with DSD+ and I hear a lot more traffic with that than I do with the new radio. I am hoping someone can offer some advice as I am new to the new to me digital system.

Thanks in advance
