    I saw their booth at Pacificon, too...they had scanners that get all of the new digital modes and one that came preprogrammed by your location..not sure how this rumor got started.

How about everyone wait until there is REAL solid information.

    It's really possible that they are going to stop making scanners for RadioShack... RadioShack it's not even close to what use to be on the past when the store really was related to RADIO, and DYI electronics.

    GRE just came out with the new PSR-120:

    Hope this is going to turn out OK. Own two PSR-800s and was looking forward to the PSR-900.

    Personally I think this is a bunch of bull puckey! Nothing on the website indicates that they have ceased production.

    Radio Shack at the moment seems to be at least trying in the DIY area (Arduino, etc...) but I don't know how much interest or follow-through has developed amongst those of us who've bemoaned RS's up-til-now desertion of this area for cell phones and other things.

    As for GRE - it's not unheard of for things to look "normal" (big display at Pacificon, etc...) right up to the instant Corporate drops the hammer down.

    More and more governmental agencies are going encrypted. I work in public safety radio, and heck, even us technicians have encryption. I think the new Moto APX radios have ADP for a $1 option now with one key, you can load via RSS.

    Roger that! I needed a SO-239 barrel last weekend. I called the local Rat Shack before driving up there. They had no idea what a coax connector is, never mind an SO-239.

    It is a business reality that there is insufficient demand to support them being an electronics shop, but c'mon, even the chicken band guys need connectors at times!

    Question: As anyone on this forum taken 5 minutes to call GRE and either confirm or deny the story?
    No? Why not?
    Oh, wait a minute: If it was printed on the Internet it "must be true... NOT!!!"
    Don't worry: You can all sit there and ruminate over an Internet rumor. Ill do your job for you and will have the information -- hopefully -- in next weeks Amateur Radio Newsline report.
