• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    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:

Radio Shack is closing out the serial cable, 20-289, for programing most of their radios. I have both the serial and the USB cable, but when I saw the 20-289 on closeout for $9.95 I decided to buy another one for a spare. I checked the computer and one store near me was listed having it in stock. Well they were sold out and I checked a couple of others and they did not have one either. If you can find one, this would be the last chance to get a serial cable and at a cheap price.

Humm, here I sit with USB from GRE for near $30 by the time it shipped.

But then it works flawlessly every time, so I reckon I'm satisfied.

I just got 5 at RS here in CT for $5/ea. They are going on ebay next week. They are selling for $21 there. Im going back this weekend for final sale to see if I can get the serial cables for a dollar or 2.
