• 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:

Scanner had a shunt and fell of a chair.

DC jack on PCB was damaged

Anybody know of a source or 3rd party for these ?

Whistler says they do not sell/stock internal parts for these

If your any good at soldering, you can buy almost any type of jack and install it. It may not be an exact repair, but will function just fine. Be sure to observe polarity. In a pinch, you could bring a pair of wires out through the case and connect to the adapter wires. Depends on how bad you need to listen to your scanner.
