    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.

Hi, new to shortwave radio. Can a Cobra 148GTL be used as a base unit? If so, what sort of power supply is best suited for running off the house 120VAC? Having never seen this unit, I am guessing it has black and red wires for use in a 12VDC system but probably no elegant power supply connector, right?

If not, what would be a good, equivalently priced about $150, base unit? Thanks.
