I just upgraded to a Radio Shack Pro-164. A little complicated to program but one hellova scanner. Incredible all what you can listen to. From air traffic to cops to ham, and all the crazy weirdos and their antics around you. So far today in a town north of me, there was a car parked across from a bank with a woman sitting in the passenger side hanging a sign out the window that said her husband was a drug dealer. Then there's the guy that had a fight with his girl friend and talked suicidal and took off in his pick up packing his 9 mm, and that's just Saturday morning in back woods Wisconsin. Never a dull moment.
