    Quality good but not great

    Pros

    • Easy To Use
    • Lightweight

    Cons

    • Drains Battery

      Comments about RadioShack PRO-649 200-Channel Handheld Radio Scanner:

      Used to monitor police, fire, ambulance in rural areas. Replaced older Rado Shack unit that had worn out. Compared to this older unit, the speaker quality was scratchier, reception (station pickup) was poorer. Batteries only last a day so use wired adapter. Very easy to program and use however.

          Nice for around the house.
          No power adapter, nor can find one that fits.
          Spend a little more money for 500 channel, with power adapter.

          Comments about RadioShack PRO-649 200-Channel Handheld Radio Scanner:

          One of your survey options is that this equipment drains the battery. I totally agree with this. I have tried finding a AC power adapter to use in the home and have yet to find one. I have searched Radio Shack's online site but cannot find one to work. When I ordered this I assumed that one would be included in the package or would have said something on Radio Shack's online page that addition accessories would need to be purchased for this scanner. Running on batteries only last for two days at the most.

          Comments about RadioShack PRO-649 200-Channel Handheld Radio Scanner:

          Great little scanner. Easy to program, simple to use and works very well for what I paid for it. The only drawback I can see so far is the volume control... you go from barely audible to REALLY LOUD with just a slight turn of the knob. Volume control is a bit better with headphones but most of the time I want to use it with the built in speaker.

            Comments about RadioShack PRO-649 200-Channel Handheld Radio Scanner:

            *Used mainly to identify airliners taking off and landing carrying friends and family.
            *Secondary use to monitor the weather channel during weather events.
            *Programming features are useful to allow manual switching back and forth between frequencies.
            *Scan function is annoying as it keeps moving between channels.
            *Occasional cross channel inteference with tx channels 0.1MHz +/- was a bit annoying.
            *Would be nice to be able to give titles to channels.
