Always had a preference for older RS scanners, so picked up a used tech special PRO-76 on on Ebay, battery compartment still had batteries in them, leaked over the years, totally destroying the battery contact metal. Unfortunately the battery holder consists partly of the plastic door that detaches from the radio. Decided to just replace the whole works with a 9V battery and so far so good.

Did a lot of shopping around for AA battery holders but none would fit into the unit.

Of course now cannot recharge as with the old 4 AA NiCads, but not a problem for me as the scanner is used at home only a few times a month when the local fire whistle blows.

Thanks for reading, hopefully this'll be of help to someone.
