Excellent Radio for scanning  Time owned: more than 12 months
I have this radio for 5 years or more.. I have used it for FM while out walking. Now it resides on my night table for use if the fire dept. gets toned out on my Bearcat I put this on get the call and also take it with me on the call sometimes depending on my hurry out the door. I only use rechargeable batteries.
