• 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?

    BCD436HP: New scanner... Dim Lcd barely readable

    I very recently got a Bcd436hp scanner. I'm barely hearing much, even on the citizens bands, but that's probably something I'm doing wrong. The screen however... Even with the contrast at the highest setting; unless I have a bright light directly on the screen, I can't read anything on...

    BC75XLT: Question About Display Issues With 75XLT's

    Howdy all, I'm looking at a BC75XLT to use as a conventional scanner while out on the road, but have heard that some of the older models suffered from premature failure of the LCD display while they were still relatively new. I was also told that even though they are nearly identical radios...

    EVX-534 ch tag display

    This is my first time programming vertex radios and I can't get the the alpha tag to display on the LCD screen. I can tell it has all 12 channels programmed in the radio as I'm able to change via the selector knob and the T/A channels work with each other but I can figure out why it won't...

    BC75XLT: LCD display idiosyncrasies

    I'm wondering if any BC75XLT owners have noticed this little quirk - not a complaint, just an observation: From time to time I was seeing what looked like a message appear very faintly at the top or bottom of the display. It was too brief to catch the message, so I assumed it pertained to a...

    LCD Monitor Broadcasts Noise To Radio! Why?

    I don't operate any wireless equipment at my living location. This includes computers, computer equipment, routers, non-computer equipment, etc. I'm having a problem with one of my LCD monitors. It works without problems. That was until I picked up some heavy static noises from a hand held...

    PSR-800 no LCD backlight?

    I just got my new PSR-800 and the LCD backlight will not come on. The keypad light works, and I found the LiteArea menu entry and tried LCD and both. I also put it on USB power to make sure it wasn't the batteries. Is this a software issue or should I just start packing this up to go back?

    LCD Monitor Ghosting..

    I have a19" HANNS-G LCD Monitor that has been working great for over 4 years, but now is showing shimmering ghosting to the right of every Icon on the desktop and for a good 1/2" of grayish shimmering along left vertical edges of open Pages. A faint view of the underlying Desktop Icons show...

    PRO-92 backlight LCD upgrade?

    Does any outfit perform backlight LCD upgrades for the venerable PRO-92? Even when mine was brand spanking new in 1999, the backlight was a weak, sickly green, like you might receive from an anemic firefly <g>. My biggest gripe with this terrific scanner has always been the weak and...

    I have a PRO-96 and had the display go "all black" 2 years ago. It was sent in for repair while still under warranty (at that time) and has been working fine until...
