An oldie but a goodie !!! Still working good after 20 years. Useful for monitoring the local Ham repeaters, Weather Watcher Nets, and the county Sherrif dept. They never switched over to digital. It is able to pick up the old analog cell phone conversations on 800 MHz, but all of those phones are gone. Never heard anything interesting there anyway, just people calling to let their spouse know that they are on their way home.
