    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:

DAMN GOOD DEAL! Did you know it was a Pro 96 before receiving it though (like a posted photo)?
The back sticker on the scanner says Pro 95 but the front is a Pro 96, the seller did not know a lot about scanners and assumed it was a Pro 95. I took a chance and bidded on it and it was indeed a Pro 96, works fine.

Here is a youtube video of my GRE PSR 600. The audio is not the best, I had it turn up a little to loud, the analog is alright but some of the digital was a little distorted. This is the Columbia PD which is digital, and various Richland county units which are analog.

There's a Columbia PD in every state in the union. Can you be a little more specific, since you don't list your location in your profile?

Nice Harmon-Kardon Soundsticks! I have those, and they slam!

They come with a sub-woofer that looks like an acrylic R2D2. It's freakin' huge! The whole setup looked a lot smaller on the Apple website when I ordered them, lol. When this gigantic box arrived in Iraq, I was like, WTF? But seriously, they are like home theatre quality sound. Worth every penny.

Definitely a nice score on all that stuff! Everytime I look for radio stuff on eBay, the bidding wars go too high.

Is that the Pro-96 with the writing on the speaker? LOL anyway I see you got a case to cover it up. Still awesome deal. Kind of weird that the sticker says Pro-95 though. RS mix up? Great shack, enjoy.

In watching the display, you may notice "SCHP" comes up several times. And with the ever so slight drawl in their speech, my guess is [South Carolina] Highway Patrol...

Nice setup!

I just bought a damaged PRO-2096 with a bad display and keypad for $90, I was able to replace it and now I have a nearly new PRO-2096 :)

I saw one like that on ebay from a seller name "sundaysseconds", I started to buy it but did not know how much it would cost me to repair it. BTW "sundaysseconds" was the seller I bought my Pro-2096 from.

Yup, thats where I got it from.

I actually had a fully functional Pro-2096 that I bought on eBay several months ago for around $300, but then somehow it got damaged when taking it out of my car to bring it inside. I believe it was something with the antenna connection, as it would not receive any signal unless I tuned to a frequency and keyed up that frequency on my Ham.

So I just bought that hoping that it was just the front panel that was damaged, and I was going to use the front panel from my existing radio and combine them, which I did and it works great :)
