• 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:

In a yard sale, I found a decent looking (not great), but seemingly perfectly working J430W.
Wow - what sound! After Googling it, I find all sorts of information I don't trust.

Does anyone here know anything about these? Age? I'm assuming 60's, 70's. It's a real
wood case (not laminate particle).

Thanks!

Perhaps I should have clarified. The brief time I spent looking (before posting here) resulted in finding
references to the radio on eBay - hence, the lack of trust factor.

Thank you for the link! This isn't like the best-thing-since-sliced-bread kind of performer; I'm just
impressed with the sound quality.

Again, thanks for the information.
