It's my go-to scanner unless I leave home and head into a simulcast area and then I take my BCD396XT with me as well. If you are going to use it in a loud area you may want to try bluetooth headphones with a stereo bluetooth transmitter plugged into the headphone jack on the scanner it will do just fine.
Thanks, I was starting to wonder. Some of the posts I've read talked about having to use a amplified speaker. I was more concerned with the earphone setup. I happen to use a mono over the ear earphone that you used to find a most truck stops. They have fairly large speakers in them.
As far as the car goes, I have over 600 watts of JBL power with a auxillary input jack on the stereo head. That should be enough.
Yeah, I need to look into bluetooth transmitters & earphones.
