Be able to receive many signals,

I normally only use the standard antenna on mine & as a whole I find close call kicks in a a very reasonable distance. I do have a few frequencies programmed in, but only a few dozen at most & the scanner is very very rarely used on anything but CC. But I always find something to listen to when out & about.

They were the most popular analogue handheld until the emergence of the digital options. and were the favourite Airband enthusiasts choice due to frequency range,scanning speed and memory size until their cheaper brother the 125XLT came along .

Still a very good Scanner and can be picked up very cheap second-hand on Ebay.

I've had 2 in the past 10 years, I find it hard to see past them. The first one I wore the buttons off it, not that it was cheap, I was travelling a lot and it was being used a lot. The one I have now spends a lot of it's life wired to a laptop and computer controlled via Freescan
