I've been studying for my tech + CW test, and was telling the wife about how cool it willbe when I get my first radio, and she suggested we get a scanner (we have talked about it before).
went to Radio Shack & picked up a Pro-95 for $149
been enjoying the hell out of it. She has been laughing at me because I have never listened to scanners before, and she used to have one a long time ago. I've been walking around the house with it and carried it in the car with me to work
my pc hookup should be here Monday, going to download some software and start working on banking some freqs..I drive 110 miles round trip a day, and want to program in the freqs for the area I work in.
