personally, I like the Icom homebase scanners, such
as the IC-R8500, IC-R9000, and IC-R9500 especially. they seem to do just about
everything one could want, and can also have a voice board fitted, to read out
the frequency, which is great for when one finds something interesting, as one
can actually know where to find it again.
they are at the expensive end of the range however,
especially the 9500.
where are you?
if you are in the UK, I can easily tell you where
these can be found, but I have a sneaking suspicion that you are not, so thought
I would ask first.

Subject: [TechTalk] Looking for
blind-friendly scanner recommendations
I've been looking at
information on various scanners (mostly Uniden models) and am pretty much
confused and feeling like I don't have the information I really need. I know
that I don't want a hand-held model and I don't want one that uses touch
screen technology, so what's left? Based on your personal use and experience,
what's a really good, blind-friendly TrunkTracker scanner? I do know that in
addition to all the basics, I want S.A.M.E. weather alert and I'm not wedded
to Uniden as a manufacturer, but if you do recommend another brand, please
include information on where to buy. Just to show my low level of
understanding, what's the difference between analog and digital models? Thanks
for any/all feedback and suggestions.
