    Try the Bel E795 for $99. I read some great reviews on this. Will try to find the links. In the meantime, you can find the info at the Radioshack website. I think Bel makes it exclusively for Radioshack, but if Roy sells it, I'd buy it from him. This is the back up detector I'm going to purchase, until I buy an RX65 from Roy.
