    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 got a pristine Pro-62 Handheld Scanner, which scan fine but no longer receives VHF-lo, and has a loud ringing screech on vhf-hi. It works ok on UHF. Anyone know if RS still repairs these radios?

Thanks,
Rob

You can see what they want. But RS has been selling the PRO-83 for $70 , and it has signal stalker to boot plus the same # of channels.

I would guess to say it would cost more to fix an out of warranty scanner. They would probably charge at least $30 for the shipping cost.

Below is a quote from the equiptment for sale forum:

I have 2 Radio Shack PRO-83 200-channel handheld scanners for sale. They are NOT refurbs. or store returns! They are brand new in their original, un-opened retail packages.
Asking $60.00 each delivered or $110.00 for both.

I would look in that thread forum. It was posted by Buffalogoat. Use your own discretion!
