    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 DJ-175T 2 meter radio

I don't have that specific model but I purchased the DJ596 MK-II and have been less then impressed. It receives and transmits well but operation is a bit of a hassle. You have to press one of the keys and then adjust the volume. The speaked sounds like something out fo a toy. The belt clip is part of the battery and broke off the first time I sat down with it in the car.

If I had to do over I would go with something else.

Just my humble opinion
