    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.

Just wondering if anybody has an antenna for a Radio Shack Pro-2039 or if they know where I can get one. Radio Shack is always out of stock and I've checked alot of stores but just cant find one. I'd really appreciate it if someone could help me out, Thanks

Antenna

These 2 replacements probably are in stock in store.....

Choice one.....
http://www.radioshack.com/product/i...032075.2032078.2032098&pg=2&parentPage=family

278-117 adapter is needed for this antenna (Motorola to BNC)


Choice two.....
http://www.radioshack.com/product/i...032075.2032078.2032098&pg=2&parentPage=family

278-116 adapter is needed for this antenna (right angle bnc)

Either of these won't stay upright without a little support, fyi.
(If you need an explaination, pm me.)


Original screw in antenna....
From the parts list thats in the support area that Jerri mentions.. here is the actual part number for the screw in antenna. I doubt that RS parts have it, but they might. It won't be in the store...ever. You'll have to get an employee who knows how to order RSU or whatever its called now.

Go to Radio Shack, have the sales associate order this part from RSU (sixth button from the left on the second row)

There is a hole in the top of the scanner. I need the actual stock antenna. I've called Radio Shack & have gone to the store but they apparently dont make the antenna anymore or are just always out of stock. Any other help would be greatly appreciated.

This is the 3 section antenna that goes through the hole in the top of the scanner. It is available and can be ordered through the Radio Shack sales system. It is NOT a stock item in the store. If the associate does not know how to order parts, have them get the manager or another associate do it for them.

Just called the Radio Shack support number and they said they are out of stock and no longer carry the product. The manager at the store couldnt find it in his system and had told me to call that number. Not sure what else to do now?

I'm sure he's not going to be all that mad, disappointed maybe, but not mad. I'm sure he just wants a working scanner and one of those antennas will work.

I was able to order this item from RSU with a $2.50 shipping plus tax.

As I have said before, this is NOT a store stock item and has to be ordered
