      I had two radio shack over the years and when the last one died I looked for another scanner. Ordered a bearcat off another site and immediately sent it back. Too complicated, no AC plug included and couldn't figure out the computer plug at all. This one is simple and gets the job done. Easy to program for the casual listener

      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.
