    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.

I'm looking to buy an ac adapter for my Sony ICF 2010. I know that is 4.5V and the center tip connector is negative, but my doubt is about the amperage. Some literature and owners suggest .4 , .5 ,or .8 mA but Im worried about the correct OEM amperage to avoid damage. Also in the Sony 2010 service manual don't specify it. Any suggestion about the correct amperage and alternatives to Sony brand???

Try to get a linear psu rather than a switcher, switchers can make much more noise at rf than linear supplies do.
