looking to get a handheld that can cover amatuer bands and aircraft
(50,108,144,420mhz). not interested in trunking, not interested in small
size. 50 channels should do as I have a 30channel base I am using now.
anyone have some suggestions?

Most scanners have that plus much more. To get just that you'd probably have
to go back to a model designed prior to 1990. If that's all you want, just go
for the cheapest you can find. But if you want SSB on the ham bands you may
need to look at the newer models from Icom, Yaesu, Kenwood, etc., almost
anyone but Radio Shack (Realistic).
