• 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 bought a cheap(under $2), stick on, CB mic holder at a truck stop to use on the dash of my pickup. It has 3M tape on the back. I've used it for a couple of months now and thought I'd share it with everyone. I got an extra belt clip that I cut shorter so it would fit inside the mic holder. It could also be used with the button style that are on the back of some radios. Make sure to clean the surface you are going to stick it to with alcohol first. I'm sure it would work better on a smooth surface that a rough one. They are sold in chrome or black or glow-in-the-dark. This is a 2000 Dodge Dakota.

I used one of those for a while in my car for my 396, but eventually the summer heat weakened the adhesive and it fell off. I replaced it with one of the 99 cent metal ones that attach with screws.
