2006 Prices Are too HIGH!!!

Some of you guys sure love your 2006 scanners. I've seen prices as high
as $450.00 for a "near" mint scanner. I bought a new one 5 months ago for
$325.00. Thats my two cents worth.

Perhaps some people have been asking $450 for a PRO-2006, but do you
really believe that they're selling for that price? As you point out, you
can buy them for a lot less, so I'm not sure what your point is... Anyway,
I'd be interested in knowing where you bought a new PRO2006 for $325. Even
when they were widely available from RS, the going rate for a new unit was
closer to $350.

I have a few questions about the PRO-2006:

1) What is the highest frequency it will pick up?

2) Does it have wide-band FM?

3) How many banks/channels?

4) Does Rat Shack still repair broken ones easily?

The real truth is:
That within the next 2-3 years you'll see prices do nothing but go up
and up and up. Because that they are the daddy of scanners with 100's
of mods avail for them.

Make sure you notice where the person is selling the scanner.  Most of
the $450 prices I have seen are coming from Canada (i.e. Canadian
dollars).
