• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    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.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

    Alinco: black squiggles on LCD screen, how remove?

    On my Alinco DJ-580 HT (about 20 years old), there are black squiggles on the LCD screen (see attachment). The screen is covered by glass so I can't touch the actual screen. How can I remove them? How can I prevent them from getting bigger?

Yes, CALL button beeps and I can enter freqs into both VHR and UHF call memorizes. Buttons are touch rather than push / click on...

    Alinco DJ-X2000 problems connecting to PC via RS232

    Hi, first time poster so be gentle, I have owned this scanner for a couple of years and never had any luck connecting it to a PC. I assumed it was something to do with it not liking RS232-USB adaptors or the ERW7 USB cable. I recently got a toughbook, which is graced with an RS232 port so i...

    Alinco: What variety of female SMA is this on my DJ500T?

    I was getting an upgrade from the rubber duck included of the Alinco DJ500T and noticed the SMA threads seem a little longer than the regular SMA female antennas. It would appear to be similar to the Vertex variety of SMA, does anyone know what type it is for sure before I buy the antenna? Also...

    Alinco EMS-12 Cable

    My Alinco EMS-12 mic is still in great condition, however the cable has a bad case of rubber rot. I think it's pretty dumb to have to buy a new mic, just because of a bad cable, but Alinco/GRE no longer stocks the cable and even the Chinese don't seem to make one. I'd be happy replacing it with...

    Alinco DJ-X11 vs. Degen 1103 at HF

    Hi all After receiving my Degen 1103 I did compare it with my Alinco DJ-X11 to see how the DJ-X11 performed at HF just off the whip. This because the very low audio level of my DJ-X11 never convinced me at all, especially after watching many videos of the IC-R20 or the AOR8200 receiving HF...

    Three scanners to choose from ... which would you recommend?

    Hi folks. I'm planning on buying a scanner as I have been without one for a few years. I used to have an AOR 8200 Mk1 which I loved using. Currently I have three models on my 'radar'; the Alinco DJ-X2000, the Icom IC-R20 and, if I don't feel too guilty about spending the extra cash, the...

    Computer Tower Radio Setup

    I saw another guy on this forum hollow out a computer case and install multiple scanners in it. I don't remember what his project was. So, to save space and make the area look clean, I decided to try it and see how it would work out. I took a computer case I had laying around that had nothing...
