    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.

I picked up a Radio Shack PRS-100 today at a garage sale. Does anyone have any information on this two way radio? It has two channels. Thanks...Dave

I have two of them. Bought new about 12-13 years ago. They are GMRS 1-watt radios. The channels are GMRS 7 and either 2 or 4 from what I remember. I still use them occasionally these days. They have been very dependable radios for many years.
