Trunking Recorder Installation with ProScan

Trunking Recorder supports importing calls recorded by ProScan, these can be Trunked Systems or conventional frequencies. Trunking Recorder can import calls from multiple instances of ProScan if they all share a common base recording directory.


  • Only supports MP3 format and not WAV format.
  • ProScan tag mappings are hardcoded and cannot be changed in Trunking Recorder.
  • ProScan "Site" value for Trunked System calls will be used as "SystemID" in Trunking Recorder for Uniden DMA scanners.
  • Only tested with Uniden SDS200, BCD536HP, and BCD996XT scanners. (It should work with any scanner supported by ProScan)
  • Any ProScan recorded calls that are corrupt or missing MP3 ID3v2 MetaData will not be imported.
  • To have ProScan display and record User ID MetaData you may need to ensure your scanner has the "Display Unit ID" option enabled.
  • If ProScan misses the Unit ID (Source ID) at the start of the call it will not be written to the MP3 ID3v2 MetaData and will be blank in Trunking Recorder.
  • All calls are treated as "Group" calls in Trunking Recorder.
