    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:

Hi all, I own a Radio Shack PRO-164 and I have lost one of the keys somehow. The L/O key came off so now I can't lock out channels. I found the RSU number on this forum, RSU 12430682, and went to the local store today but after they spent about 20 minutes trying to figure out how to order it, they called some internal Radio Shack help line, and after more waiting, told me that this part can't be ordered. So, have they discontinued selling parts for this scanner?

What are my options here? Why is it so difficult to get parts for this thing?

When I get to the store in the morning, I will check on the parts availability . Parts do sell out from time to time.

Thanks I appreciate that. So if the part is in the system, it should be available if it's not sold out?
