Summary: the scanner is a nice scanner I give it that; however the controls are a bit confusing. I do like this scanner I do believe that the instruction book could give you more information as to use the item instead of just giving you the commands.
Summary: I am a railroad fan in Canada (Ontario). I use the scanner for listening to train crews talk back and forth, and with dispatch and yard masters. It is excellent for learning and knowing what is going on with on-coming trains. It has a 35+ km range which is extremely impressive. The scan function is such that any chatter from all programed frequencies, from all railraods is heard quite clearly. Most impressive of all was the order service.
Pros: Accurate Controls, Clear Signal, Easy To Set Up, Good Sound
