Where can I pick up a clip for my 500? Mine broke last night. Right now I am using the clip from my Pro-97. Tried looking on GREs website and didn't see anything. I think I have seen it somewhere just don't remember where.
I don't use my belt clip anymore, the plastic that holds the belt clip on broke off so now I have to either buy a new housing or rig one up. I know it won't happen but wish they made a rugged housing, I know I've never broken any Motorola belt clips or housings.Just curious....... Who here doesn't use their belt clip? I took mine off as soon as I got my scanner. I just put in a holder on my desk at home and when I'm on the road I also put it into a holder while driving. When I'm out walking or hiking I just hate the thought of the clip breaking off and the radio doing a face plant on the ground. I keep mine in a fanny pack
I don't use it as a belt clip. I'm wide enough as it is without wearing stuff on my belt to make me even wider.Just curious....... Who here doesn't use their belt clip?
It fits and works so well every 500 owner should have one IMHO. Plus it takes 99% of the stress off the connector for those of you like myself who carry it EVERYWHERE under all conditions. According to the "scanner guy" at HRO in Phoenix, it has sweet spots at 120/144/155/430/460/860. Because of this I would say it is probably the best scanner duck going as far as performance. The Diamond 77 has a touch better performance on VHF, but is as long as your arm and that doesn't cut it for my uses most of the time. Though for those who own only the PSR-500 and want the best duck performance possible when they set their scanner on a desk and listen, it is the best choice.Thanks for the reminder tip on the Diamond RH519. I saw that a while back and forgot about it.
