    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:

The manual for my Yaesu VX-3R only talks about alkaline batteries to be used in the optional case. Is there a problem using Li-ion batteries? I bought it used in 2012 and I'm not sure when it was manufactured but I am sure that when the manual was printed, Li-ion batteries were not as prolific as they are now.
