Ok with limitations  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
I decided since I live in the path of Potomac TRACON that a dedicated air band radio would be nice to have. The radio has many fine features like 100 memories, ATS tuning and other tuning modes. The drawback is it has no squelch. On FM this is not an issue but on aviation band you are listening to static until something is heard which is annoying. It does a good job of picking up plane to ground and ground to plane comms. For the price a decent scanner would be a better fit. But the size and features make up for some shortcomings. The ATS memory feature if you live near a large airport would have been worth its squelch issue, but all in all it rates an OK
