Looks like this is all that is ever posted in here, but I wanted to clarify a few things for myself.
I don't really care about what the police are saying in my area. I do want a scanner with highway patrol alert. I don't care about the size of the unit, as I can figure out where to mount it no matter what.
So I happened upon the BCT-8: http://www.strongsignals.net/access/.../rr_bct-8.html.
Aside from how it says it's from 2003 (Are they still in production?) this seems like what I want.
Does it have the highway patrol alert feature?
Does it pick up the 800mhz band? I think this is trunking, but I'm probably miserably wrong. It picks up close to 800mhz (806), but is this ok?
Pretty much, I'm looking for something that will go off in some way or form when I'm getting close to a police car. Will the BCT-8 do it for me?
Finally, where's the best (cheapest) place to get one?
