I bought my WHAMO Scanner NEW at Graham Electronics in Indianapolis....when it first came out in the mid-1970's. A few years later, while visiting AES Electronics in Milwaukee, I saw the matching Digital Frequency Selectors NIB being closed out for $19.95, so one one those followed me home! I still have it all including the frequency programming book and tooth-breaking tool. Now, I am thinking I probably should get a few more frequency combs BEORE they are totally impossible to find.
The only problem I've had with my WHAMO is a noticeable 60 Hz hum. I could probably re-cap the power supply to fix this. Instead, I now power it from a small external, filtered 12 VDC supply.
This Regency scanner is one of four Regencies I still own and all still work. Regency, in it's early days made some really rock-solid scanners.
