You are over thinking this. It runs on batteries, therefore it is DC. You are looking for a regular AC to 9V DC transformer over 800 milliamp hours output.This takes a 9 volt AC power supply...Any way around that, or where I might get one??? I called the Shack, but they were not very helpful...All my other scanners run one DC...Thanks, Tom
Yep, what dkf435 said. A lot of old external modems used 9VAC adapters.Have found modem or telephone answering machine adapters at second hand stores and Goodwill that will work.
If you cannot find one you can take and bust a 9v one apart and remove the cap and diodes and put back together.
Not sure why Uniden made these models with AC adapters.
How right you are!PRO-2016 schematics are available on the FCC site; search for AAO2000422.
The AC power input is connected to a full wave rectifier that provides the main DC voltage to operate the radio. There is also a voltage doubler powered from the AC input to provide higher voltage for the PLL and VCO. Running the radio from a DC power adapter would definitely not be recommended.
The Uniden part number for a 10V 300mA AC adapter is AC-144U. Amazon lists this item at Amazon.com: AC-AC ADAPTER 10VAC @ 300mA, RIGHT ANGLE 2.1MM POWER PLUG: Electronics
