• 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:

No, check the other "when will RS have a new scanner" threads. When something is announced, you will NOT have to search for information. It will be obvious.

Remember that old song, "One step forward and two steps back"....?

Applies here.

C'mon, Radio Shack. Only a company that fires 400 employees by email thinks the consumers want a "new" scanner with less features.

I'm keeping my 96, though. You guys did something right.

Thanks all
Yeah bout the spacing etc features
I think Ratshack just wants to have Somewhat of future in scanner sales
Ya know on those that will/can Survive the rebanding process:roll:
Albiet BEARLY LOL

I would NOTecept ANYTHING innovative in the reciver areas until at LEAST two things happen:

Radioshack/GRE secures its future by staying there course of restructuring their size, purpose etc
And'

The USA sees the end of the rebanding which has bearly even started....

Uniden, Icom AOR, etc there majority consisst of reciver, ham media, enthusiasts etc.
Where as Radiosahck depnds on not evn one percento f us scanner lovers..
Mainl Cell phonse dvd plsyers,consumer Strictly products..
Even Ipods I have seen:roll:

YEah I used t LOVE Radioshcak's Products...
Bu now I am a Uniden.Icom.AOR etc Convert..
Once ya goo TOp o line ya never go back except for sentimental values...:lol:

anyhows
Love
to all

Can't Find Them

I checked the Radio Shack website and couldn't find the Pro-528 or Pro-433. Anybody know any sites I can find them at other than the one listed earlier? I know for a fact they don't have those 2 in the stores, well, at least in my area.

Those aren't new scanners, they are repackaged versions of older scanners. Nothing different operationally at all, no new features. Different name.

These are not the "wave of the future," that's for sure...

These were probably a "special purchase" (that means Uniden wanted to unload some spare parts...) and RS will blow them out for next-to-nothing on the day after Thanksgiving. They'll probably go to "clearance" status shortly thereafter and everyone will forget about them by Groundhog's Day.

Don't worry about it... ;)
