I've decided, i'm going for the Maycom AR-108 Airband Scanner.
(Getting it from here: http://www.wsplc.com)
Just one question though, can it pick up LHR tower with the frequency it has?
One site says it has 136Mhz - 180Mhz
(Which I dont think will be able to pick up LHR tower) and another website says it has 108Mhz-136Mhz Airband, 136Mhz to 180Mhz VHR frequency.
If this doesn't pick up LHR tower, can I buy an Aerial that will be able to?
(I'm not saying I want to pick up LHR tower from my house as I live in the East Midlands (126 miles away from London) I'm saying will I be able to pick up LHR tower if I go down there to visit?)
Thanks for all your replies on this mindblowing topic!
