    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.

Picked up a used PRO-197 off of eBay last week and it arrived yesterday. Great scanner. Works flawlessly. Well, except for one minor thing... the volume knob and the squelch knob wants to stick together. Not a major issue, just mildly irritating.

What's the best way to get them to turn freely of each other? Vaseline? Wipe a little WD-40 on them? Something else? Nothing, just deal with it? LOL

Any info / comments / tips / comments and/or suggestions will be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

:)

Mine did the same thing one time, all I did was push upward on the volume knob a few times and it freed them right up, works like brand new now

You're right, it's just like brand new. Thanks for the tip.

Sometimes the simplest solutions are the best / most effective ones.
