• 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.

    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:

    I see rechargeable LifeP04 (Lithium Iron Phosphate) AA cells are starting to show up at some stores. DO NOT use these in your scanner! These cells are 3.2V and will not work (for long) in consumer scanners designed for 1.2V AA cells.

    Hi! Just checking to see if anyone has used the SAME Standby mode on the PRO-164 or any scanner and if it works well. I have been anxiously waiting for a watch or warning to set the scanner and wait for the alarm to kick on, but nothing yet!
