Pro-2006 vs. Pro-2035--Some advice please.

Post by KNi » Tue, 07 Mar 1995 21:54:29

After making do with a handheld for a number of years, I'm finally going
to make the move to a desk model.

My question is:  Any thoughts or feelings on the Pro-2006 vs. the
Pro-2035.  I recently got the latest catalog from Grove and am torn
between the 2.  Any feelings on whether it's better to get the 2006 in
it's cell restorable form or whether the Pro-2035 with the GRE converter
would work just as well?

Many thanks for any and all input before I go and lay out the coin.

Recommend you read the article in January 1995 Monitoring Times
comparing the PRO-2006 to the PRO-2035.

The PRO-2006 RF performance is better than the PRO-2035.

You didn't say if you wanted to connect the scanner to a computer.
If so, you may want to stay with the PRO-2006 and fit it with
an aftermarket interface.

In any event, I recommend the new Uniden/Bearcat BC9000XLT.
It's a "2035-killer."

I heard that Optronics has a 2035 computer interface in the works.
I got a 2006 myself.  Works fine, and the 2006 is supposed to be
better immune to RF interference, some images, and the like,
than the 2035.  The only disadvantages are a 400 channel memory,
vs a 1000 channel memory, although each has 10 banks.  Ten
one-hundred channel banks, I think, are as much use as ten forty
channel banks, anyway.  Also, the 2035 scans at 50 cps, as opposed
to 26 cps (without the computer interface) on a 2006.  Other than
that, my 2006 more than suits my purposes.
