Pretty good beginners receiver

The PRO-2006 was the first receiver I acquired, for only EUR 15 on a yard sale. I didn't even really know anything about hamming at the time. But the PRO-2006 got me hooked right away.

What I like:
- easy to use
- large memory (400 chn)

What I don't like:
- no rotating knob to change frequency
- no alpha tags
- sensitivity not great

I can recommend this receiver to anyone who wants to get started with our hobby, or as a second (standby) receiver.

One more thing: the PRO-2006 uses a 9V battery cell for memory backup. When you buy this scanner, make sure you check if the previous owner didn't leave an old, leaky battery in the rig.
