• 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:

My 90's era 200XLT quit working. It will not pick up any signals and even when adjusting the squelch to try to make it stop on a channel it will not work. Any idea what might be the problem? Is it officially trashed and time to buy a new scanner? This scanner picked up the county stuff just fine and I never saw need to update. If repair would be under 75 bucks I would like to get fixed. Can anyone recommend a reputable repair person or shop in Eastern NC?
