    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.

I tried crimping an RJ45 connector my Mc 53 microphone with no luck had a friend do it he also had no luck I was reading it might be because of the stranded wire in the microphone cable does anyone think that I can use a junction box to add a piece of wire to make it so I can have a secondary backup microphone

Correct, some older mic cables have tinsel like wire. Better to get a new Kenwood cable and change the cable/connector out. Some mics have a little inline connector on the mic circuit board.
