My first scanner was a Tandy, my other scanners to date are Uniden. I have 5. One in car, one on fridge, one in basement, and two in bedrooms. These scanners pick up CB and everything in between. If a state trouper transmits, the scanner instantly locks onto the trunk. Uniden rd's are unbelievable! You have never experienced radio/radar detection even approaching this level of excellence! I just wish there was a competitor to knock the price down a bit.
