Could someone post a quick responce to this question ...

What or how does an attenuating cable work , for going from
the outjack to a mic jack.

What does it actually do ??

TIA

Often, you will want to both record *and* listen to what your
scanner is receiving. To do this, many receivrs have a "tape
out" jack. This jack's output level is fixed (not controlled
by the volume control). Often, this jack's output level is too
high for the input of a tape recorder, and results in a distorted
recording.
An attenuating cable will reduse the signal level from the tape
out jack, to a level that the recorder can handle.
