• 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:

I just went to my local RS store, was looking for a new antenna to try out, talked to the person in charge, said they set them all back to corporate, he was not even sure why. Not one antenna in the store anymore for scanners. Starting to lose a little faith in RS.

Was it a mall store? Some of the mall stores are no longer carrying parts and what not, because they just don't sell in a mall.

I like the Shack. I know the folks behind the counter don't really know a lot about the wonderful world of electronics, but the company stands behind their stuff. Buy something and it don't work? No hassle exchange Buy something and you don't like it? No hassle return. And the website has lots of documented help for everything I have bought there.

Hmmm .. For Christmas, I was given some RS gift cards. Bought a Grundig SW reciever with them. Didn't like it. Took it back. No problem. They gave me a gift card as a refund.
This was the Woodhaven, Michigan store.

I just returned my defective PRO-2005 with no hassles at all. In fact, I've NEVER had any problems returning items to Radio shack that either were defective, or didn't suit my needs.

My only complaint is that the manager refused to find me another one with a current date code.

Read the recept; it clearly states what is required for returns.

Just went into my local RS the other day they have more items in there than they have had in along time, it was like walking into a completely different store. More radio stuff than what ive seen since the store opened. If you have a problem with the personel i would take the time to complain to the company, were you will get results. Good Scannin hoser147

Then they should put in the yellow pages ad "this store doesn't carry anything but phones, ipods, road gps, etc.". It is a pain when you look up a location for radioshack, and when you get there it looks like best buy.
