    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:

Hi there folks. I've just picked up a Pro97 and have downloaded the (incredibly useful!) Win97 program to use with it. I am a Summer Camp Director and with the fires going on in the mountains of Southern California, I figured I might gain some advantage by having my ears tuned to the people who really know what's going on.

However, I've run into some problems with Win97.

Specifically, when I am trying to input a trunking system (Mot), I'm running into the program telling me that the ID must be between 0000-2047, while some of the Mot codes I've been given are outside of that range.

The information I've been given is formatted as such, is there some other way I should be inputting it?

Frequency List: 868.1125, 866.6875, etc etc etc

1904 F 8-Fire-1 Dispatch
2128 F 8-FTac-2 Tactical

etc.

As you can see, the last code is clearly out of the range that the software wants to allow.

Any ideas? Perhaps it's a different type of system?

Thanks guys!

Brian

Bingo. I knew I was in the right place! There are so many options in this software, I thought I'd checked them all.

Thanks.
Yes, it looks quite challenging to use, but it's really not. When you get familiar with all the programs' features, it really becomes handy. :)

Yes, I'll definetely be registering the software. Now I've just got to order another cable, as it doesn't seem like my radio shack cable will allow transfer from the radio the computer, only vice versa.

What cable did you buy? If you're interested. I can send you my Pro-97 list. I live in Highland. Got everything from Aircraft, CHP and CALTRANS, and Fire. Also have Tanker Base ground support frequencies.

Ah, scratch that. The packaging on the RS box said "Download Only", but it appears to be working the other direction as well. Great!
Great! Radio Shack sold me the Orange USB Cable and it didn't work. Had to buy the serial cable. Now, my laptop didn't come with a serial port. Had to buy the Serial to USB adaptor.
