    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:

Hello... I saw some 5-pin Wi-Fi cables at Fry's last wk, the other end, of course, was USB. And the cable only costs around $12! Does anyone have any experience with this type as far as will it fit the 396T and thus avoid having to shell out $30 to Uniden for likewise cord? Thanks in advance!

If it's a Wifi cable it will not convert the signal from serial to USB.

The advantage to the Uniden USB-1 is that it is the only Serial-to-USB cable supported by Uniden, so if you have problems and called or emailed for support, they could help.
