    I saw this reviewed in one magazine a bit ago, if you have the choice of taking the girlfriend to London, or buying one of these, buy the scanner, and take the girlfriend camping!


    I have one, it covers 100khz to 1300 Mhz
    (no ssb though)
    If you are in to civil airband, you can also select the new 8.33 Mhz channel spacing.

    US model has cellphone frequencies blocked out.

    for the price and the size, I'd say yes. You will need to read the manual though, as inputting frequencies can be a little tedious. If you want to use an external antenna ie discone, you'll have to get a bnc-sma adaptor


    Indeed, not a bad scanner for the price

    Shop around, it has stayed at the same price for at least a year. If you have a bit more to spend, have a look at the Yuperteru MVT 7100

    Hope this helps

    As long as the frequency they are using is not digital, if they have gone digital you will have no chance, do you know what frequency they operate on ?/

    Yes, as long as the selected frequency is between 500 khz and 1300 Mhz (they are) and they are not using digital equipment

    Default Dissapointed Newbie

    Dear Firends,
    it's 6 hours since i bought this beauty.I'm a flightsimmer and mainly i want to hear the airband.But i'm very dissapointed.I live in the centre of Glasgow and i can't hear nothing more than am-fm.I read the directions,i tried different configurations ,i tried all the frequencies i'm interested in, but i can't hear even the ATIS (129.575) which supposed to be a very strong signal.
    Any ideas please?
    Do i do something wrong?:splease
    Thank you
