There really is no such thing as an overall "best" scanner because there in
no single model that does everything.
Do you want to track public safety trunked radio systems? Well, the 245XLT
is the best, at least in a unit that is fully independent and fully functional
without being hooked to a computer.
Do you want to monitor military aircraft? Then the 245XLT isn't suitable at
all because it doesn't receive the UHF military airband from 225-400MHz and you
can't select AM receive mode in the 138-144MHz range.
How about shortwave coverage? Is that important to you? If so, then you
have to get an ICOM, AOR, Yupiteru or one of the other high-end receivers.
I think you get my drift by now.
