• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

Picked up a Pro-164 today and I am very impressed with this radio's EARS! This thing really pulls in well and keeps right on going. The audio is very loud and clear and it is a very nice looking radio. The manual has me very confused and I have yet to figure out how to program it, but just turning it on and hitting scan, it is pulling in very good stuff.
I also purchased a programming cable for the computer and rechargable batteries. I already have a wall wart from my psr-100 that will fit and work for recharging. The back light is very nice and bright. I put on an 800 mhz antenna from the shack made by gre and it is a perfect match for this radio. This is the only HH that actually kept up and picked up with my base scanner (pro-433). So to say the least I would highly recommend this radio and I am very impressed. This is one bad a$$ HH scanner.

Anyone have the GRE 300 and have an opportunity to compare the 164 made for Radio Shack versus the GRECOM labeled PSR300?.................... Thanks in advance.

Apart from branding and the fact that you can't clone between the two, they're identical.

I would have to say that I like the pro-82 better from a performance standpoint. It picks up better and seems to scan faster. The psr-100 is a very good looking scanner, it also works very well. The pro-82 just pulls in those distant signals a bit better and the battery life seems longer also.
