Scanner Earphone -> CD Input, SBlaster?

Post by Terry Wo » Mon, 13 Mar 1995 15:06:21

Hello there...

I have an Aor8000 which i use the earphone with a mono bud socket so i can
hear my scanner clearly when driving which works quite well..

In my car I have a stereo that has a `CD Input' on the front so you can plug a
discman cdplayer in and listen to CD's cheaply? in the car without buying a CD
unit.. Anyway, can some one tell me if it would be OK to solder up a
male<>male plug that would go from my scanner into the stereo CD input so that
it is output on the speakers (Ill hear it then! :)..

CD Input Level = 250mV
CD Impedance   = 600omh

Also, whats the go with say plugging the scanner into the MIC input of a
Soundblaster 16 to digitize something thats being RX on the scanner?

I have also found in Melbourne (are there any Melbourne people out there)
Australia, on 151.9500 Mhz NFM some form of TX that sounds like backwards
speech!  They play some music aswell as talk like general chatter and i just
cant work out what it is, so i want to Digitize and flip it, or use some
s/ware to invert and play it realtime like I have on the amiga...

Woody,
Don't use the MIC input of a soundcard....the output from a scanner's
earphone or tape outputs will be much too loud for the input, and will
distort badly.  If you're using the earphone output, you'd have to turn
the volume WAY down to reduce the level enough...and there is no volume
control for a "tape" output.

Hopefully, your soundcard has a LINE input as well.  This will easily
handle the input level from the scanner....no distortion...no problems.

Good listening!
