Re: Realistic

Any radio shack should still sell the base antenna for this. It is cat. no. 20-176. You will need coaxial cable, antenna, (2) pl-259 connectors with UG176 adapter and a pl259 to RCA Motorola adapter.

Re: Realistic

Snickers1 hi, if I googled in the right scanner, yours is an older one with an antenna that screws into a stud inside the top cover. Here is a link to a site that has a lot of the older stuff covered. He's been selling CB stuff for over 30 years. You'll have to look at your scanner inside to see if it's male or female thread. I hope this helps with what your looking for,, Mechanic

Looking for a manual for a Realistic Patrolman Pro 40 UHF/VHF Scanner. I don't even know what kind of power supply it needs.. LOL

Hi, that unit looks to be a mobile scanner and if I'm seeing right then you would need a Base power supply that could supply 12volt to it. Course you could also use a computer power supply and find the 12 volt line out on it. Here is the link to some spec's for it. Looks also to be crystal controlled so it cannot be reprogrammed. Good luck.
