    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:

I am not sure if it done something when it was hooked up but it worked perfectly at first the only thing i can think of that was wrong was they had the two radio wires and bot high and low output wire all hooked up. He said it get hot and stopped working so it was unhooked and given to me. i have tried to hook it up correct and know the back lighting or nothing comes on it dont sound the sirens either and when ever i hook the wires up the power wire its self i have comming from the ground gets hot... Any ideas or fixes... PLEASE HELP!!!

You smoked the output transformer and transistor by hooking it up wrong. Time to buy a new one as its cheaper to find a used one and hook it up the right way than to pay for a repair.
