I'm just about to buy a scanner so I can listen to my local airport's frequencies, but I don't know much about radios. Could anybody help me? How expensive is a good scanner? Can I receive all the ATC band with it (118-136Mhz)? Can I be at home 20 miles from the airport and still be able to receive the tower frequency loud and clear or do I have to be near the airport?
Thanks a lot in advance,
