Good bang for your buck!
First, it comes with a mounting bracket. The online manual says it's an optional extra.
Second, this is a narrowband scanner that can scan frequencies four places to the right of the decimal point. This narrowband law for radio equipment was passed by congress in 2013. So your not left out in the cold as newer radios take advantage of narrowband.
Third, it’s an analog scanner and not digital. There is no law saying radios have to be upgraded to digital so plenty of traffic to scan
Fourth, it can’t pickup trunked phase one or phase two signals but you can store all the trunked frequencies of the system your listening to in the 300 channel memory and scan them on turbo scan.
Fifth, it breaks up the 300 channel memory over three banks instead of one. Some found this to be an inconvenience but how many channels do you need?
Sixth, it pickups from 25 megahertz to 956 megahertz excluding car FM radio band and cellphone radio band. It’s a law no scanner can pickup cellphone band. So it covers a wide range of signals from CB, maritime, aircraft, police, fire and rescue just to name a few.
DEFINITELY A LOT OF BANG FOR YOUR BUCK!
