What's the difference between a "transceiver" ans a "scanner"

Hi There,

        I am a beginner in the ham world.

        I have a couple questions for the transceiver and scanner,

        I hope someone can help me to find the answer.

        Does a transceiver can also scan the frequencies just as

        a scanner does ?

        What is the frequensy limitation for a scanner and transceiver ?

        Also, can I buy a scanner with cellure access(for example

        100kHz-2.06GHz wihtout gap) in the radio shop ?

        Thaks a lot.

        Everybody has a nice weekend. :)

Some transceivers have scan capabilities.

Scanners cover virtually the entire communications spectrum.

Scan capable transceivers are most commonly in the 2 meter and 440 ham
bands.  At least one commercial manufacturer (Motorola) sells scan capable
business/public safety radios.  There are others, but a little less common
in the "mainstream."

I don't know about this one.

The difference between a scanner and a transciver is that a scanner
RECIEVES radio.  Scanners SCAN the radio spectrum.
Transcievers TRANSMIT and RECEIVE radio.  TRANSmit recEIVER!!
Some transceivers can scan but that differs between models!
Most transceivers are on one or two channels.  Some have "out of band"
receive.
