    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    Hey, a question for all you Motorola techs out there. Is there an adapter, or some other way to mate an antenna off of a Motorola 800 MHz radio to a scanner with a bnc female antenna jack. I'm having some issues picking up p25, and thought if I could put a professional antenna on the scanner...

    Motorola Microphone to Kenwood Radio adapter?

    Is there such a beast? I have a box of nice Motorola desk mics, and I'd like to use two of them on my Kenwood TM-D710As. If I weren't lazy, I could make an adapter (if the mics are compatible with the radios; I've haven't investigated that). But I'd much rather buy something nice that someone...

    RS Wallwart for RS pro 404

    The RS 404 says min 400 milliamp and 9v. So, I got the 9v 800. Then, the young RS employee who wasn't even sure what I was talking about at first fitted a "C" plug to the wall wart. It fits fine, but not super snug. First, is RS's type C the right one? Second, the polarity being correct, I get...
