    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:

Is the DB9 on the back useable for connection to the PC or just GPS? Would it use a standard serial cable.
Connection off the front certainely works but in my application it sure would be nice if I can connect off the back!
Thanks

You can connect to the back. You must use a null-modem adapter to connect to a PC (the DB9 is configured for direct plug-in from a GPS's serial cable). You also need to set the port speed to match your PC settings (default on the port is 4800 bps, which is the standard speed for NMEA 0183 [GPS] devices).
