    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.

Picked up my old BC 100XLT a few months ago. It had been sitting for about 5 years!! The battery wouldn't hold a charge anymore. So I took it with me to the local Battery's +.
They were able to rebuild it in a couple of days!!
I think I payed @ $36?!?! They replaced the Nicad's with 1700 NIMH cells. It lasts about 7-8 hours before needing a recharge!! Works Great!! My only problem is that since I reset it the other day I can no longer receive in the 42.000 Mz. My local CHP.
Otherwise I still love the damned thing!!
LOL!! Any ideas? Thanks in advance for any help!!
