    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:

Can someone help me identify this old handheld?

I found these in a closet at my Grandparents house. My dad says they used them during hunting season in the late 60's-early 70's (date range was an approximate). I put in new batteries but neither would fire up, the Truetone 12 transistor (radio on left) had some corrosion on the battery holder but the Truetone Ten was pretty clean. I did some searching and found nothing useful. If the model # in the picture is hard to read, its "DC4412". How easy is it to get old radio's like these operating? Or would I even want to?

They look like old 27 MHz. CB portable radios made by Midland in the mid 1960's. I had a similar looking radio that was black instead of grey.
