• 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:

Does anyone know if you can have a CB connected to a outside scantenna while other scanners are connected via a splitter. Or may it FRY the the scanners when you transmitt on the CB ? Thanks!

Hi Dent and all,

You'll fry your final if you try to transmit using a Scanenna for CB, the SWR is such you can't count that high. Just use the proper antenna(s) for the job and have them adequately spaced so you don't blast your scanner's RF section with more volts than it can handle.

Bill, which side is the sticky side? I asked Yoda but somewhere in all that double talk he said to ask you.
