    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 know I can make a mic extension cable using everyday cat5, I don't know what the wire configuration needs to be? Can someone help me with this?

Thanks!

I don't understand what sort of configuration information you need? I would imagine it would just be straight through since you want the connector at the end of the extension to be exactly the same as the connector at the end of the mic cable.

Sorry that I was not clear. I guess what I want to know is, will a standard network cable work with a RJ45 coupler?

I'm been using a regular LAN type cable from Radio Shack for years as an "extension cord" for my 208h mobile with no problems at all.
