That is a Uniden UBC-355CLT being sold under a different badge & to be honest, it's coverage is too limited to be a comparison with most other scanners. If you simply want to listen to some local airband & marine, plus a few bits of other local activity, then it's a good little radio. But it is not any where close to something like the Realistic 2006 mentioned above.

Oh & if you do look at a Realistic/ Radio Shack 2006/2005 then make sure the display is bright. The backlight can be changed, but if you are not very good with a soldering iron, it's probably going to cost you more to get done, than the radio is worth. But the 2005/6 are still really good scanners.
