    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:

Looking to add external speakers to the following:
Bearcat Electra IV

Plectron, 70's vintage ( chrome with aqua band and red light on front)

Regency 8 channel monitoradio/scanner

I had already soldered on 1/8" jack plug and it's the wrong size for all 3

I appreciate any help you can provide.
Thank you all

Paul

WOW! Your testing my memory..I believe your dealing with an RCA phono jack on the scanners...not your standard audio plug. The plug from an old audio patch cable should work.

enjoy

What you have is either a 3/32" (not 1/8") jack or an RCA "phono" connector. The 3/32 LOOKS like a 1/8 but is a shade smaller. The RCA looks like neither of these but was at one time used by some for external speaker connections. Just look closely at what you have and decide what you need.
