RatShack has the Pro-2035 on clearance for $389 (vs. list $449 in last
If my ultimate goal is to have an Optoscan 535 in the radio anyway, is
there any reason to buy the Pro-2042 for $429-$499 (depending on source)
rather than a 2035 for $389? I know about the differences in firmware
between the two (better channel mgmt. and freq. duplication checking on
the 2042), but my impression is that the computer control software will far
exceed the capabilities of the 2042 anyway.
Any impressions or suggestions would be most appreciated!
PS: While the local store has 1 or 2 2035's in stock, none of the area
stores have *any* 2042's. Are they that hard-to-get??
