Picked up another Pro-43 off of eBay...not sure why..maybe I missed my old one. I forgot, how shall I put "quaint" it is to program everything on the Win-43 alpha parts actual squelch tail...a tiny little display light..six AA batteries?? Made in Japan instead of China. When's the last time you bought a scanner that beckoned you to open it up and do a few mods? Or one with the squelch and volume control "upside down" because it is assumed you will operate it clipped to your belt with a single earpiece stuck in your ear like you're Secret Service?

DOES picks up milair pretty well. Of course. I don't know. I usually don't buy electronics out of some need for nostalgia. Might stick it back on eBay. Might keep it forever. Haven't decided.
