    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:

Well, I just found this one at a yard sale and I have a few questions about it.

Does anyone know where to find the manual for this scanner, and what kind of antenna jack does it use? Thanks

You may wind up paying more for the manual than the radio.
Are you just trying to program it or something more?
Chances are if you have specific questions one of the many knowledgable posters to these forums can assist.

I have one too, and there really isn't a manual, it's more like a folded up road map sort of affair.
If you just grab the little telescoping antenna and pull straight out it will slide right out. It has a "car antenna" sort of plug in for other antennas.
