    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.

First off: Stop typing with caps for the first letter of every word, it makes reading your post more difficult.

"I Have The Fuses To Connect From My Scanner To The Back Of The Car Where The Two Wires Are. I Had It Make Good Connection Go Once"
Does this mean the power cables for the scanner with the red and black cable. If so, why wire it to the back when you have a fuse block up front. Its not that hard to get to, and also automotive stores sell a device that plugs into an existing fuse slot and allows you to add a circuit, which would be your scanner wire. If you choose to go the route of using that cigarette circuit you need to id the wires, ie, use a volt meter or tester, and do you have a fuse inline on your scanner cable for protection?
The fuse block adapter is a better idea.. plug them in items such as horn, radio, or some other secondary circuit, get a good ground and your done. total cost should be less than 12-15 $
