Has anyone tried out the PRO-2035 - I think it replaced the legendary
2006 model ?  Any mods for the 2035 to complete the 30-1000 range?

Thanks in advance,

       The PRO-2035 is the replacement for the PRO-2006. I own a 2006
and I am very impressed with its performance and ease of modification.
However, in order to comply with Federal laws concerning the monitoring
of cellular phones, the 2035 is suppose to be unmodifiable. The
cellular phone bands are permanently locked-out and cannot be restored.
      While I have not had hands-on experience with the 2035, I have read
a review on it in Monitoring Times (Oct '94) which says that its
performance is equal to that of the 2006, plus it has the advantage
of 1000 channels, a VFO, and a "search and store feature."
If the cellular phones are not important to you, you should seriously
consider the 2035. However, if you want to monitor the cellular bands, try
to find a used 2006.

I have a new Pro-2035 on the way. Can't wait to try it out. I do have
several Pro-2006 and Pro-2004 scanners. It  will be interensting to see
if the 2035 is any better. As for opening up all the bands, I did hear that
there was a European model that does have the cellular band enables. Rember
the new law states "easily modified" the term "easy" will be intersting to
see if someone attempts to redefine the word. In any case, is there are models
out there that can received the callular band then I am sure the 2035 can be
modified.

I'm currently reviewing a PRO-2035 for the National Scanning Report. So
far, I like it. It has a few drawbacks, but all in all it is a fitting
replacement for the '2006. If the OptoScan 456 board will work or can be
modified to work in the '2035, so much the better. As far as mods go,
there are no mods to open up 800 MHz coverage; that is locked inside the
micorprocessor and cannot be altered (in line with our government's ***
policy of telling us what we can and cannot listen to, even though the
airwaves are public. I remain convinced that if someone wants to keep a
radio transmission private, it should be encrypted).

You could do a lot worse than the PRO-2035. It far surpasses any similar
product offered by any other manufacturer.

Tom, has National Scanning (which I subscribe to) received a BC3000XLT to
review yet?

I am looking at this scanner but still think I want a PRO-2006. Cellular
aside, how do they compare. My R-7100 does the cell. Would you recommend
this over the 2006? Need info soon.

I'm not sure. Which one is the BC-3000XLT? Is is brand new or is it one of
the new ones that came out in 92 or 93? If it is brand new, we haven't
gotten one yet.

The BC3000XLT is replacing the BC2500XLT late this month. The BC9000XLT is
replacing the BC8500XLT next month.

I just found out yesterday we have not gotten one yet but expect to get
one soon. I did not know the 3000 had been completed yet. Now I know.

Anyone will be able to buy one in 2 weeks. I was hoping that Nat Scanning
had reviewed it so we'd know what to expect. Please let me know if you get
to play with one.
