Aviation Radio/Scanner suggestion
I'm slowly but surely making a "Radio Cabinet" that will house the following:
- A P25 VHF Radio to monitor local SO, VFD's, DPS, TFS, TXDOT, Interop and TX on 2M Amateur Radio.
- A Conv UHF Radio to monitor Business & Interop and TX on GMRS & 70cm Amateur Radio
- An 800Mhz EDACS Provoice radio to Monitor the current City System and Interop Frequencies
- A Uniden BCD536HP to monitor the soon future City Phase II System. (I will still keep the 800mhz radio to monitor interop frequencies.
I also want to include an additional radio or scanner to monitor the local airport & ARTCC frequencies. I dont want to use the existing BCD536HP because I have noticed with my 436HP that when scanning a conv and trnk system together really gets slow and things get missed. I want something that is alphanumeric but I have also noticed that aviation band scanners that are alphanumeric are expensive. I have also thought about getting an Avitaion band radio such as an ICOM a110 but the price is outrageous. Does anyone have any suggestions on an Alphanumeric aviation band scanner or radio that is not to expensive.
