The Web Service

The 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 the user can download data using this applications. Please see the link for more information.
  • 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.


Supported scanners are shown in italics. Only those packages known to support the new SOAP based interface are shown here. Those that are still on the old XML service are shown in the web service1.1 article linked below.
