• 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:

My belt clip on my Pro 96 broke and radio shack's website doesn't have a replacment. Should I even bother with the ignorance of Radio Shack employees, or do you know where, how I can get a replacment? If worse comes to worse, do you know where I can get a radio case/holster? Thanks!

WOW! Never used bolt clip, checked I have one. Perhaps I'm missing something??

Did use belt clip once on the Pro91 listneing to the Coast Guard when I was in Port Aransas, but never on the Pro96. It's always between the seats when mobile. 99% of the time it's really a Base at the shop or on desk here where I'm presently monitoring APD NARC on a 1/4 wave Ground Plane.

Walking around with a scanner talking makes the Civilians nervous. I make them nervous enough by my very presence- I don't need the added stress. You can get shot for less than
that in Austin TX...

Suggestion:

If you are going to carry the radio on your belt, get a holster for it. The radio is going to fall off your belt to the ground from time to time using the clip that comes with it. If you don't have it in some sort of leather case, it won't take many drops to mess it up.
