RadioShack / Realistic Pro-2006 reviews

Pretty good beginners receiver

RadioShack / Realistic Pro-2006, Desktop HF/VHF/UHF Scanner / 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.
