Default Any Recommendations For Another RS Scanner?

Can anybody tell me any Low Band RadioShack scanners? I am trying to get a RS Scanner to tune to 72.50000 and other low band frequencies that my county uses. The other scanner I have is a RadioShack PRO-164. Thanks!!

I don't think any scanners cover the 72 MHz range. I try putting that same frequency in my scanner and says error. That frequency is used by the fire department for its alarm boxes.

Add the Uniden BC250D and BC296D to that list of capable receivers (I know it's not the Radio Shack brand but it works).

I do not know of any GRE-made scanners that can tune to this band. The one I have which does is Uniden-made. So if you want a scanner from RS, you'll have to go with Uniden.

A pro96 will used in conjunction with win 96 software, tick the box opening up the bands and will work well. Here in NSW Au the police in certain areas and a few other agencies use VHF Mid band (78mhz).
Just another option.
Cheers

Old Radio Shack Pro 26 made by Uniden has something like 25-1300MHz coverage except cell.
