you can get it for under $249. As far as the Radio Shack scanners, the
reason you didn't find one you liked may be because RS has recalled
most of them :-) The Pro43 is a good choice for a handheld but you may
have to pay between $300 and $350 for it. If you want cellular
capability you may want to find one manufactured with a date code prior
to 4A4 (April 94).
