• 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:

If you monitor 800 much you could get the RS 800 rubber duck which works very well.

Rubber duck is a small flexible antenna for scanners or 2way radios. one should have came with your pro 95. You can get a car adapter for the ciggarette lighter in your car from Radio shack. Also if you want an external speaker you will need one that is amplified due to the fact your earphone plug on the Pro95 only puts out 4db to protect your hearing with a earpiece type speaker hope I answered your ? s ................hoser147

Note that the antenna in the link provided by W5JSS is an antenna specially designed for 800MHz monitoring. It's different than the one that was included with your scanner. If 800MHz is the band you listen to a lot, you might look into getting one.

I've read this twice and am confused about the subject of this thread. Are we talking Pro96 or Pro95 here?

It seems to start as 96 and becomes 95! They are two differnet machines!

confused as always,
Jon

I'd start off with 2-3 sets of rechargable batteries and a charger, an A/C cable and a cigarette lighter cable. There's TONS of antennas out there available from RS and other makers (personally I prefer the 800 mhz Radio Shack antenna and the Icom UHF/VHF flexible antenna) Also definately a 9 Pin to Stereo cable, and Win95.

I would also recommend this: http://www.davee.com/scanrec/ It's free, but you need a 1/8 inch to 1/8 inch stereo cable. Just plug one end into the scanner headphone jack and the other into your computer's line in jack. It'll record anything you want to listen to, only when the SQ is broken. I've grown to find it pretty handy lately.

Jon, maybe I am the confused one, but I don't see 96 mentioned in the title or any of the posts? :confused:
