If you are in a rural area and trunking systems are not used out your way then it should do fine. A bonus is the Military Air band in the 200 to 400 MHz range.
Only drawback I heard was that since it is a double conversion scanner , it may be prone to picking up some unwanted "crap" that the newer triple conversion scanners would filter out.
Under a hundred bucks... why not ?
