There is one for sale on eBay right now:

Suppose you could use it for a door stop or a foot rest....

I realize this is an old post. Would you happen to still have the L99ZX? I had on hit by lightening and am looking to replace it.

Lightbulb Old post, New Idea

I have had this thing sitting around for a while now and i was thinking....

Recently I have been playing with my scanner and UniTrunker. I was wondering it I could use this 800Mhz unit as a receiver for the Control Channels?

I would like plug in some Control Channels for RX and run UniTrunker off it. So I can use my scanner to Monitor and this unit and an old computer to UniTrunk?

wondering how possible this is and if its worth it. Or if i should just keep it as a door stop...


Thanks for reading
