• 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:

Anyone know a good place to get a in the case speaker for the 83?

Mine is starting to sound like it might be going. Getting scratchy sounding.

You'll need to order the part direct (from RadioShack parts), or return the 83 to RadioShack for repair.

Is the replacement any better quality? I remember something on the PRO-43's the replacement speaker had better audio quality.

I don't know. Are you sure its the speaker and not loose batteries, or something stuck to the cone magnet?

I'm not sure what it is. When the rain comes later I will take apart and check. Never really had it up loud enough to damage the speaker. Does't mean someone else didn't though.

That's one thing I don't like about power the button being separate from the volume knob.
