    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.

Anyone ever hear of a Holzberg Radio? It's a dual band. It has the same specs as my TYT as far as RX/TX but what I want to know is if its same plastic feel or is it a decent radio? The things are going for $585.00 a piece as opposed to the cheap $130.00 so I'm thinking they cant be the same, they have to be better. ?These thingsare also called the DB-ANDY. Questions, comments?

Well, I was debating taking a chance. I'm on propertyroom.com looking at a bulk auction (actually 3 pcs) There's an HT600 and a spare battery as well as the Holzberg radio. The auction was only at 6 bucks which the HT600 even though very old is definately worth that and up to 25 bucks. The Holzberg was just a bonus. It's got the same specs almost as my TYT but I figured if it was better built, then I'd take a stab at it. I figured that even if I paid up to like $40.00 for the 2 of them I'd still be making out, but if the radio is a piece of dirt, I'm not even going to bother as HT600's are a dime a dozen
