When you take any radio in the house and hook it up it becomes a BASE RADIO.

Just to make things clear.
There is no way you are going to convince me that my 396s are base scanners just because they are powered from 120 and hooked to an outside antenna. No one makes a base scanner at this point in time. Base scanners have a metal chassis, a speaker larger than a silver dollar, and a proper audio amp.
