    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 got my GPS18x LVC and I'm trying to figure out how to wire power to it. I assumed 12v would be fine when I bought it, but that is not the case. It requires a 4-5.5v input. Do any of the pins on the rear DB9 connector provide that voltage? In some notes I found on my previous GPS I was using, I have wrote done that pin 4 is power. I have pin 2 as data from GPS and pin 5 as ground. Thanks for any help on this!

The scanner's db9 port does not provide power.

When I had a similar setup I used an adapter I had laying around that was the right voltage. Failing that, I'd go to RadioShack and get an adapter.
