    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 was looking around the house for power adapters I had laying around. I found a 9v 350ma, would this work? I know it officially takes a 9v 300ma but didnt know if the 350ma would damage the unit or not. I know for some items I have used slightly different adapters before and they worked just fine. Anyone here ever use a slightly different adapter for the Pro-97?

You can use one with more ma without damaging the unit. Just make sure the tip has the correct polarity.

350 ma is pretty close so should be ok, I used a 800ma one with no problem I stopped because the rechargable batteries seem to get warmer then normal maybe they charged quicker

i run my 97 on a home made regulated 1.5 amp ps. fused with a 500 milliamp inline fuse. it seems to work very well and i always, like having a fuse for safety.
