    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.

My latest UBC126AT will not charge unless it is turned off. Is this a new "feature" / development as my previous ones all have charged while in use.

This has caused me some issues as I often leaving it running attached to my laptop logging and in the past they have always charged.

Thanks. My previous ones would charge when connected and in use as I would often leave them connected to my laptop all day while at work and it would top up the batteries. This is a real pain...

I was puzzled in that you said "My previous ones would charge when connected" but you have never said (unless I missed it) that you have had multiple UBC126AT scanners that charged whilst connected to a PC and it is just this one latest UBC126AT scanner that has the so called problem.

Are you actaully saying that all your previous scanners that were not UBC126AT units were happy to charge and be used while connected to your PC?

I have a bad feeling that this change was made due to a California charger law. If so, who would have predicted that it would have impacted someone in Australia. Sorry...
