• 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:

I just got a Uniden 996T scanner for around my area. But I'm not sure if it comes with a wall plug or not??? If it does not what kind do I need. I know it comes with a Car power adaptor.

The 996T I bought several years ago came with a wall wart. It’s the kind that sticks out to the side allowing room for another thing to plug in below it. I much prefer it to the large heavy rectangular kind that came with my Radio Shack radios. If yours doesn’t come with one, following is a link to the Radio Reference 996T Wiki page which has power requirements and other helpful info. And here’s also a link to the Owner’s Manual with a picture of the AC adapter on page 30. HTH!

One other question.

Antenna. I'd like a universal band coverage 100mhz through 900mhz But I can't put up a house antenna. I just need something to plug into the back.
