    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:

Few years back ordered 100 12v and 100 6v multi color pack for less then $10 each and have not looked back replace them as they go out in all the ham radios and receivers. Next time may go to LEDs. The only thing special about the ICOM parts is the little rubber tinted covers and they slip off. Do need to go through one of IC8500s as all the lamps have finally burned out, but it never gets turned off.
