    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.

Is there a way to increase the backlight timer past 80 seconds in WIN97?

Any help appreciated :)

Max = approx 82 seconds

Win97 accepts values from 0-8191 (in 1/100 of a second) = 81.91 seconds. Anything larger gives this error message.

"Please enter an integer between 0 and 8191."

ME TOO! I would like a Always On choice, but GRE doesn't seem to want us to have it.
Alas, it was not to be... I suspect it is due to the life of batteries available at the time,which was about 1000mAH at the time of the Design. Now it's 2400mAH and soon to get better.
Running 1800mAH and very happy as they keep charge for several days.

Page 62 of the pdf owner's manual:
"In any backlight mode, you can press and hold for about 1
second to force the backlight on full time. Press while the
backlight is on to turn it off."
