• 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:

Just curious if anyone has any tricks for wiping this logo away (something like nail polish or something). I searched and yielded no results. It's not a major deal, but if someone found a quick and easy way to wipe it off, I'd love to hear it.

Carefully use nail polish remover and some cotton balls or swabs. Be sure you don't touch the display screen. :eek:
But do you really want to do this ? You will have a worn looking area where the logo was. :(
Put on a piece of tape over the logo that matches the color of the scanner.

I actually like NASCAR I'm just that kind of a girl, but I hate that logo myself.

Tape it off neatly and spray it with 2-3 coats of flat black paint.

NO self respecting Redneck would think of using anything but DUCT TAPE! Who do you think founded NASCAR anyway?

Double-sided tape. That way, you can stick it to your forehead to receive those extra, FAINT signals.

No self respecting redneck would be interested in removing, covering, or otherwise tampering with the revered NASCAR logo in the first place.

Well there Goober, what's wrong with a little duck tape dee-cor-ration?

"Go to Sanrio Surprises at your local mall and purchase a Hello Kitty sticker to cover the offending NASCAR logo."

ZZ, you make it awfully hard to type, I may stop laughing eventually!

As many of us have done; I have traded and sold many radios to upgrade.
I would never permanently deface a scanner.
Keeping your radios in pristine condition along with keeping boxes, manuals, cables, etc. increases the resale value in the future.
If you will ever consider reselling your scanner; I would recommend a temporary solution (tape).

The only cool part of Nascar is the fiery car wrecks.
