    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 bought a PRO-82 for $30 from the shack that was missing the battery compartment cover. The radio shack looked it up and said the part is no longer available through them. Any suggestions or is it black electrical tape for me?

Your Radio Shack people are pissing on you, and telling you it's raining!

The PRO-82 is still a current model on their web site! It's not even on clearance. I'm quite certain parts are still available. I would ask to speak to the manager, or call another store. This is just another example of people being lazy and not wanting to do their job. The person who told you that should be fired, and make room for someone who wants to work. :mad:

Almost as bad is parts for current models that are backordered and the RS droid can't tell you when they expect to have them in stock again. (yellow battery holder for Pro-96)

If something is out of stock, then RS employees have no way of knowing when they will be back in stock.

Actually I was talking about the order taker at their 800 number. She didn't know either. To be fair they may not have an expected date. But still, parts for a current product ought to be available.

Ah, okay, in that case it is out of stock.

And just for fun, I called someone in Ft. Worth to see when it would be back in stock, and they had no ETA. :/

Hummm, black gaffer-tape may be the short-term answer...

Duck, Masking,Packing,Scotch would also work- but the black gaffer would look better...

Hope you find one,
Jon
