Not Ready for Prime Time SWL / Fair Scanner  Time owned: unknown months
I had one of these for 3 months. Works moderately well with a good external antenna (the whip included with it is worthless). SWL sensitivity is fair, selectivity could be better. Not one of the 3 remote control programs was easy to program, scan or use. The hardware would be better when the software improves. It's a fun rig, but using one is like a taking a bath -- once you're in, it's not so hot. Buy something else. Maybe a VX-500.
