Remote Head Kit for Police Scanner Radios | ScannerMaster.comGreeting's All this might be a long shot ???? but does anyone know where I can still get one of these RH-96 remote heads if you happen to know where please PM, New Or Used,
Ok now the other ? will it hurt the 996T scanner in any way to leave it powered on with the on/off switch turned on all the time in trunk of my car and using a vehicle power source that kills all power to it when you turn the key off while using the remote head,Why I ask I think it says somewhere in the owner's Manual you should always turn the scanner off before before you remove all the power from it as in shutting the key off in the car will cut all power to the scanner,I think I read it can do something to the memory or ????.
Thanks Again folks for all the help I just don't want to mess up a good scanner
That's true in a lot of cars and trunks, however, for the few bucks the delay relays cost I feel much better not having the scanner power cycle on and off so many times and possibly have to deal with unstable power until the car/truck starts and runs for a short period of time. Sure many folks have had their scanner running this way for years, but again, I prefer not to take the chance. Anything I can do to make my electronics live longer, especially if it only cost $8, I will do it.No need to delay in my truck. Power point is not live when key is in cranking position, only with key in on or accessory positions. Your vehicle may be different but its easy to check.
