The RadioReference.com Web Service provides a common documented standard interface to the raw frequency and trunked radio data in the radio reference database.  The primary benefit to this Web service is the ability for software developers to write applications that can support this standard process for accessing the data.  Many software developers have written software that can program a scanner using data directly from the database.

The RadioReference.com Web Service provides a common documented standard interface to the raw frequency and trunked radio data in the radio reference database. The primary benefit to this Web service is the ability for software developers to write applications that can support this standard process for accessing the data. Many software developers have written software that can program a scanner using data directly from the database.

Web Service Application Support

  • A premium subscription is required before a user can download data using many of these applications. Please see the link for more information.
  • RadioReference.com does not provide technical support for individual software programming applications. For technical support of any of these applications, please contact the individual developers and/or their respective organizations using the links below.
