the cheapest way to go is to get a wire (I forgot the name of it, it can go into the microphone jack in your computer and the headphone jack in your scanner) then hook it up to the microphone (usually red) port in your computer. then use audacity [link]

There are several pieces of software that will do what you are looking for.

You could use Audacity as CFD has pointed out.
You could use SCANREC which is a "VOX" recorder - so you won't have to worry about dead space.
You could go all out - and use BUTEL's ARC-15 to control your scanner, give you a virtual display - and even record your audio for you and store it nicely! (and you can purchase via my site - or download a trial at [link] )

I use ARC-15PRO to find PL/DPL tones and use the recording function to tag each audio byte with the freq and pl so I know it is a positive hit. I use Audacity when I just need something quick on the fly. ScanREC doesn't work with my multi soundcard config.
