    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:

Just received a new BCT15 yesterday. I have noticed what seems like a faint electrical or plastic odor from the inside of the scanner. You can smell it near the openings in the case. There's no smoke or burning smell.

Anyone else notice this? I suspect it's just the plastics inside new the unit offgassing or heating up with use, but wanted to run it by the radio experts to see their thoughts.

Thanks in advance...

I don't have one but lots of electronics have that new sort of plastic/electronics smell. As hose said if it's working right I wouldn't worry about it.
