    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've had my Pro 97 for over a week now and I've noticed the stock antenna is getting easier and easier to remove. The metal connector is wobbley and when it is attached to the scanner the rubber portion will not stand straight. I can hold the antenna by the connector and tilt it to make a gap between the metal & rubber big enough to bite down on a nickle. I have other antennas like it and they are solid & won't wobble. Reception is OK outside and in the house, but aint worth a darn in my van.
