    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.

    APX 7000 Scanning Beep

    I have recently programmed my APX and when scanning I'm getting a beep when switching between channels. I have looked in the Scan Wide and Radio Profiles but didn't see anything that jumped out to me. Does anyone else know where I might find out where the setting is located?

    Hello, I am aware (due to help on another thread) that there is the mil spec waterproofing (APX7000R) and the IP rated waterproofing on the APX7000XE. My real question is if I get a radio that is used (most likely it wouldn't have tags) what is the risk that the waterproofing would have been...

    APX7000 models

    Hello, I am trying to get to the bottom of what all of the flavors of the APX7000 are. I know there is the 7000 and 7000XE but every once in a while, I see someone with a APX7000 R up for sale. They claim the R stands for Rugged. Is this actually a real model? If so, what are the differences...
