    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.

PRO-92 backlight LCD upgrade?

Does any outfit perform backlight LCD upgrades for the venerable PRO-92?

Even when mine was brand spanking new in 1999, the backlight was a weak, sickly green, like you might receive from an anemic firefly <g>. My biggest gripe with this terrific scanner has always been the weak and ineffective backlit display.

Over the years I've seen one or two PRO-92s modified with amber or red LEDs and I'd love to get mine fixed up like that; I'd have been able to do it myself a few years back but my blurry eyes and shaky hands just aren't up to the challenge of close-up precision work anymore.

Any ideas or information is gratefully accepted, even the very probable fact that it probably wouldn't be very wise to sink much money into a project like this for such an old radio.

Thanks regardless!
