      The Radio shack/Realistic  "CB Standby switch"  while it was sold to allow the CB radio breaking squelch
      to switch the speaker to the CB radio , so you could hear the CB .without other radio or stereo noise

      Years ago 
      I used it to turn on a cassette tape recorder so that it would record the scanners transmissions during the day when I was at work, so I could document the scanner traffic .  without recording hours of nothing and running out of tape. worked well, 

      here is one from Ebay

      Yes, old is good I have one of those critters and that is all fine until my wife or daughter get in and think they have to take over.
      years ago I had a mobile radio and a cheap truck stop am/fm radio and I don't remember how I did it but you could listen to the radio all right but as soon as the scanner talked it would cut the radio off and send the scanner audio through I thought it was hysterical when people would pop their asses into my car and think they were taking over and it would cut their music until it was through matter of fact I'm still laughing at the very thought and that must of been 30 years ago.

      wish I could remember....anybody got any ideas? I remember the older chrysler had a am/fm with a cb and it would cut off the audio when you keyed the mike.

      I also use a radio shack powered speaker in the car and they all work fine..
