Wish more people took an interest in mature scanner technology. Most were built to a higher standard than today's wiz bang receivers. I enjoy reading about modifying yesterday's radios with today's proven technology creating resto-mods.
That model was my first scanner also, back on xmas 1985. Simpler time indeed. Just a few frequencies programmed in from Police Call Scanner Guide and you had most of the local pds. Unlike now where everyone has their own frequency or P25 digital and trunking.
