    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:

Put a ICOM V8000 for ham / monitoring use in my Volkswagen Passat. I had a hard time finding a decent location for mounting, so I eventually chose the side of the center console. The hard wiring is thru the cigarette adapters in the bed of the trunk.... just disconnected the lines leading ot the cigarette adapter and hooked them into the radio, then ran the power lines and antenna lines under the carpet to the front of the car. Works really well.
