• 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:

I gather you worked at RS
Yes sir, I gather you saw my first "shack" picture, I was trying to put the "Radio" back in Radio Shack :)

So basically there are RS "planograms" and I was expected to only have 2 small 4ft shelves of radios :(
Well to make a point to my upper management, and having 2 extra flex panels in a GREat prime location.
I ordered and transfered into my store everything available and filled up both 4ft wall panels top to bottom !

So I could have followed my required planograms, but I stepped it up and did my own "Michael-grams" ;)
In short I got lots of compliments from both management and customers about my "Radio Shack" store !
Bottom line, I took pride in having the best selection of scanners,SW,CB & radios of any other RS store.
My store had working demos connected to rooftop antennas and all scanners sold programmed with pride :)
I had the amplified bracket speaker connected to a scanner hidden in the backroom that had
only the San Antonio International Tower, Approach/Departure, Air Emergency, S&R, A2A Pilot Chats
and our Sky News Helicopter turned down low and I got a kick out of pilots shopping and hearing traffic.
