Question by Paul B: Can you bypass an on/off varible resistor, so that the device is permanently on?
My Elderly neughbour asked me to look at his Uniden scanner, on a closer inspection, I found that the varible resistor which turned the device on and off, had broken. The contacts that joined the resistor to the circuit board had snapped right off the resistor. Volume isn’t really an issue, as long as it it loud enough to be heard. I’m looking to solder, to bypass these contacts.

Just jumper the terminals from the control to where they go in the circuit.
You still want the control, to turn it off and adjust volume.
