Rated 5 out of 5 by from If you are looking for a serious scanner that can work wonders at a good price, this is it. The feature range is impressive and although setting it up properly can seem intimidating at first, it really isn't. Just remember the mantra: System (e.g Airports) - Group (e.g Heathrow) - Channel (e.g Tower) - it works much better when it knows what you are looking for. Buy a good scanning directory and spend the time to do it right. Treat it with the respect it deserves and it will not fail to impress.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent scanner. That and Royal Discone has enabled me to hear so much more than ever before. Alpha-tagging and PC control a revelation. Top tips: 1) Band Plan 3 the best for the UK 2) the software and cable for controlling it makes a massive difference, particularly when setting up. BCTool+ software is free, unlike the "official", and does everything. cable not free and doesn't come with it. Still, buy it and you will not be disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great scanner. I am fairly new into radio scanners having upgraded from a simple airband radio to this. But with patience I will learn all I need to learn.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Heat scanner This scanner is 5 years old and exceptional. Normally it's connected to an external antanna while plugged in (24 hrs a day). It's got rechargeable AA . I commonly take it out for the day with the original antanna I can't see how it could be improved. 5 years and can't be replacesd with anything better.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from An excellent product and great value for money. This is undoubtedly the Rolls Royce of handheld scanners. You really need the PC cable and Software to program many frequencies easily. Whole experience marred by an incompetent courier driver prevents me from giving 5 out of 5 for the product. Definitely worth buying at this price point.

Whats A scanner

Asked by: moe moz
A scanner is a radio receiver that can automatically tune, or scan, two or more discrete frequencies, stopping when it finds a signal on one of them and then continuing to scan other frequencies when the initial transmission ceases.
