    Dietz bar

    I ended up winning this. Thanks for sharing! $25 after tax and fees seems good to me. Don't really know anything about these though. I think this is called an Omni Chief? I believe I found a few other threads on here I found before though but I'm on my phone right now so I won't try to find them...

    Wanted Amber Whelen 52 Linear Strobe Lens

    Looking for two amber Whelen 52 linear strobe lens for a Flatlighter (FL220). Not really wanting to spend more than maybe $30 or so, but I don't know if that would be reasonable or not. Couple of pics of what I'm looking for specifically (except in amber)

    911: Lone Star

    I'll fully admit to watching 9-1-1 for the drama :p I'm a sucker for that stuff. I still need to try the spinoff

    I've just discovered the ULTIMATE copy-cop

    I cannot believe the blocked the entire interstate (around the 10min mark) like that! Zero traffic management planning went into that. Caused dangerous congestion and I'm surprised there weren't any crashes. That entire video is absolutely remarkable and not in a good way.

    120V to 12V Power Supply for Vintage Beacons

    I have roughly a dozen of these. It was suggested by someone in a Facebook group that swears by them and I haven't had any issues with them. Some I have had for a year or two now. I don't remember how long I have ran them non-stop but if you make sure they don't get too hot I would think you...

    Whelen ST8RRBB Liberty LFL

    Both my B-Link Liberty and Patriot bars are directly to my MPC01s. Blue comm wire to blue comm wire, grey to grey, and shield to shield, at least in my case. I have a BL627 but it is not necessary to go through that if you are not wanting the siren.

    What is a true manufacturing company? Is it JDI?

    While I have not owned any JDI products, I have heard very many things about them. Somebody did provide this picture of one of their bars on fire, though. (Ha! Get it? Bar?)

    MPC01 Connector Part#?

    Not gonna lie, I stripped the wire and shoved it in to the connector using a ballpoint pen. I didn't even know there was a tool for that.

    MPC01 Connector Part#?

    These connectors work! I bought the 5 pin and the 7 pin ones and they work. They are not exact matches to what I have so anybody looking for that level of authenticity will be out of luck, but these connectors fit into the MPC01 and make my lights b-link, if you'll pardon the pun...

    Official "Whacker" or "Screwed Up Install" Thread

    That PA/siren thing looks exactly like the same one Facebook has been trying to get me to buy for a while now! I think it's like $20.

    How to make Generic Whelen Transporter for B-Link & Smart Messenger

    I figured I'd drop on here too just to share a bit of info. I bought a RS485 to USB dongle and it worked just fine on a Windows 7 laptop. I used the included CD to install the driver the computer needed, which was kind of a clunky process, but it worked. The company just threw all of the driver...

    Ecco 5280 - disassemble?

    Hi all, this is what I got back from customer service: First, the warranties on their products does not transfer and cut wires is not covered under warranty anyways. Also the 5280 is "sold as a complete unit so there are no replacement parts." I asked about either sending it in and paying for...

    Ecco 5280 - disassemble?

    I've not yet, no, figured I would see if anyone here knew anything about it first. I'm not the original owner so not sure what they can do for me. There's a date stamp 1/31/18 so would assume it's within warranty, but I can't find any info on that - including seeing if the warranty transfers to...
