Entry level scanner for 12 year old

Postby Paul63 » Sat Jan 19, 2019 12:48 pm

Hi all
What would be a good entry level air band scanner for a 12 year old I think the uniden 125 may be a bit to much for him to handle
Regards

The UBC125XLT will be fine, the average 12 year old is more clued up about technology than the average parent!
I reserve the right to ignore people who have made no attempt to the read the manual, and expect others to do it for them.

I would second that I often do JOTA the annual International event Jamboree On The Air.
I normally do Communicator badge training & learning the basics of using a radio (on RX only) is part of that & they normally manage to operate my amateur radio kit with little trouble.

I'll third that. Whenever I want a new app on my phone or some software that isn't basic I always turn to my son for help.
