Pick up repeaters further away or about the same.?
While I am not a ham, I suspect they will be little better for 2 reasons.
1. They are tuned to a much more narrow range than the wide end scanner receivers
2. They probably have a better design for that narrow range.
However, I doubt any of these things will make enough of a difference that you will suddenly pull out many more repeaters.
