• 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:

On the cable that comes with the radio there is a little round barrel on the end of the cable,is there something in there that does something for programming,the reason I am asking is that I would like to buy a extra cable at our local store,it has the same ends,minus the barrel,scared to give it try in case I damage radio.

It will be a ferrite core to diminish noise from the power source and the computer motherboard. You can buy them at electronics stores and add them later if noise is a problem with another USB cable.

The standard is USB A to USB Mini. Any cord will work, and I have used plenty. I have bought several off of ebay for 99 cents each, free shipping.
