I also have the Maycom AR-108 with a telescopic aerial. It's great for what I need it for. I mostly use it to listen to EMA approach and MAN terminal control.

Radio Shack Pro-51.

It's ancient but gets the job done. On a side note it was the last scanner made that picks up cellphone and cordless phone conversations. Makes the downtime interesting sometimes =)

I'm really happy with this one, it is small, 10 memories, also has AM/FM (who needs those?  Big grin ), I'd say its the best money can buy at $38.95.

I have a Tandy Netset Pro-44 (known in the US as Radio Shack Pro-44). Unfortuantely I dropped it and broke the display. I have been trying unsuccessfully to find a replacement part. I wrote to Radio Shack and was told that since it is not a US build they are unable to help. Does Tandy still exist in the UK? Their website directs me to Now I am thinking of upgrading to the Yupiteru MVT-7100.

Can anyone tell me what kind of scanner can I pick up for around $200, I live about 18 miles North of PHL and I really want to hear all the way down there. My friend lives like 8 miles from the airport and all he can hear is the traffic not ATC, he says its the way their signals shoot out. Any help is appreciated.

Uniden Bearcat SC150 hooked up to a cheap Radio Shack magnetic-mount antenna. It's about 10 years old, and I've only replaced the battery once.
