    This is ok. Easy to set frequencies. It needs a clear view for best reception. I have it sitting in a window. I have a whistler desk top style that works great for my needs. But it is not battery operated. So I bought this one for if the weather or whatever situation puts the power out. I have something to listen to.

    Best Buy always has the best product info. This scanner is SO easy to set up and use. The instructions were very clear and they even give you a website to find frequencies in your area.

    Well built and has many options for a good cost. Haven't picked up many transmissions locally, could be lack of range or possibly incorrect frequencies programmed in. All in all would be better for a urban environment

    I bought this as a gift for my husband as his previous scanner was no longer working. The price was great but his enjoyment is priceless.

    Very confusing. I thought it came pre-programmed but it didn't. I still have not been able to use it...5 months later.

    No, I would not recommend this to a friend
