I just found my old scanner do some cleaning in the basement, but I can't find the power cord.(yet). so in the meantime I found another power cord with the same polarity but its 9v, scanner calls for 12v.Programing works, scan works, but I get nothing, not even on the weather channel. would the power cord be the problem?

You need an antenna with a Motorola plug, also known as an automotive plug, and a 90 degree angle - or a swivel. You can pick one up on any of the scanner web stores (Scanner World, Scanner Master, Grove Enterprises, etc.) or on eBay. Here's a link to a current eBay listing: http://cgi.ebay.com/Police-Scanner-Antenna-fit-Cobra-SR-900-BC147xlt-/310183255041?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item48385cdc01
Drivers are available from the mustek web site in US or Taiwan. See http://www.mustek.com.tw/Download/driv_scanr/english/600iiieplus.html.
You need an AC power adapter if you don't have one. The original was an YHI Power Adapter, model YC-1015-15, Input 100-120V, 60 Hz, 0.4A, Output +15VDC/1A. I know because I'm reading it off of mine (I am the original owner of one, this is about 10 years old). You can find new ones on eBay for $10 plus shipping.
Finally, you need a cable that connects the scanner to the PC using parallel port technology. Both ends are 25 pin Female, and the cable itself is marked as IEEE 1284 compliant. Cable is AWM E101344 Style 20276 30V VW-1 Space Shuttle. Must have 25 pin female connectors, check eBay or http://www.driverforum.com/controller5/10421.html.
