Radioshack Driver

From The RadioReference Wiki

Radios, Headphones, TV Antennas, Cables & Adapters, DIY Tools & Parts, Electronics Maker Kits. 450+ RadioShack locations across America and more on the way! RadioShack USB to Serial Driver is a program offered by the software company RadioShack. Some people choose to remove this program. Sometimes this can be troublesome because performing this by hand takes some knowledge related to removing Windows applications by hand. The Radio Shack scale read low by approximately 1.09%. That is close enough for me! Also note that there is a 'convert' button that goes to a locally-stored web page. I took a look at the page source. It should not be difficult to hack the page to give a 'corrected' reading if you know how much your scale is off.

When you are a newcomer, and want to use software to program and/or back up the contents of your scanner, the natural question is 'which is the best'? While it's always true that the 'best' software is in the eye of the user, generally speaking there are some packages that are much more popular than others.

Scancat Lite Plus has been visible for awhile now, and it's used in some RS stores to program scanners they sell. However, as documented on several occasions in the various RR forums, it's not the best choice, in most cases. This article lists the most popular packages, by scanner, in use by RR members. In general, the most popular choices tend to support connecting to the RadioReference database and downloading data directly. To enable this function you must have a premium subscription which you can read about in the link.

Those packages that have this ability are shown in bold. If no other packages exist to support this scanner, there will be no entry. Be sure to read the notes at the bottom of each section.

Note that with the exception of the PRO-2052, PRO-106, PRO-197, PRO-651 and PRO-652, virtual control, logging and audio recording during scanning is not possible due to firmware limitations. Only up/download operations are supported.

There are no Mac-native solutions for programming. See this article from Scanner Master for alternatives.
