I've been approached by a young fellow asking for help and advice with his PRO-106. He has recently experienced a loss of all signal reception except for the very strongest local channels - and those only faintly. My understanding is that this model has a history of problems with the BNC connector and its connection to the circuit board. At my urging he already took it to the local (Kirkwood) Radio Shack with a request that it be sent back to RS for diagnosis and repair. The clerk with whom he spoke seemed unwilling to do so, urging the fellow to buy a new scanner as this would be cheaper(!!!) - almost certainly a palpable falsehood. Given RS's lack of cooperation, I'd like to suggest a local shop that can properly diagnose the issue and (if economically feasible). Is there such a reasonably priced and conveniently located shop in the local area that he could try?
