WTB or advice... used Pro-2022?

Post by John Fou » Mon, 05 Dec 1994 02:39:22

I'm thinking of getting a handheld scanner.  The cellular mods
sound like fun.  I'm willing to spend $200-300.

I saw a year-old Pro-2022 (w/mods) for sale for $200.  Is that
a good price, and a good scanner?  Should I just buy one of the
newer models shown in the Radio Shack catalog instead, and do
the mods myself?  Are there other trade-offs involved?

Strong images from cellular phone conversations make it difficult
to monitor public safety and business traffic in the 851-869 MHz
range on my PRO-2022.

RadioMap(TM) shows the nearest cell site to be several miles away
from my home.

Pay a few bucks more and look for a used PRO-2005 or PRO-2006
instead -- unless you are interested only in the 869-894 MHz
band.
