    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:

I have a GRE PSR 500 and have noticed when I have it locked on a control channel or and active channel and I wiggle on the antenna I get mixed results, it will distort and maybe go from a 99% to 15% like it is losing contact. This is with a external antenna, am wondering if anyone else has had this problem. The connector seems to be tight everything else looks fine. I have checked the "Known screw inside scanner to be loose" was loose but had no affect on this problem. Thanks for any information you can give me.
