The Bearcat BC-72XLT is a very affordable 100 channel (ten banks of ten) scanner with great features. Frequency coverage is 25-54, 108-174 and 406-512 MHz. It has Uniden's new Close Call™ RF Capture Technology that instantly tunes to signals from nearby transmitters. The Priority Scan function scans the channels you have designated as priority channels. The Delay function helps prevent missed replies during 2-way conversations. You also get six Preprogrammed Service Searches: Public Safety, Railroad (by channel), Air, Marine (by channel), CB (by channel), GMRS/FRS (by channel), Weather, News Media, Ham Radio and Special.

The backlit full frequency LCD display makes for easy night time operation. Operation is from two AA cells providing flexibility in choice of batteries: Alkaline for long life, rechargeable for economy (batteries can be charged while in the scanner).
