I'm going to take my nephew to a race in 2 weeks. I'm not really big on NASCAR but I do like spending time with him.
Last time we went I borrowed a Pro-92(?) scanner. I'm thinking of buying one myself this time. I'm not sure which to get.
I'm thinking of something like the IC-R7. Universal is having a special ant it is $200 now. For a few dollars more though I could get a Bearcar that supports trunking. I'm not too interested in listening in to the Fire, Police, EMS, etc and I would lose HF reception. I've looked at a PRO-137 that is on eBay but it has some gaps between 225 and 400.
I have a 91AD so that might be just as useful. I need something that scans fast and can still perform double duty as a ham radio tool. Listening to repeater. Using AM in UHF to look for PL noise. Sitting at the beach listing to SWL. I don't want to end up with a 'NASCAR' radio
