Sixteen years ago I bought a Bearcat BC2500XLT for my sons birthday. Little did I know at the time he had acquired one on his own a couple of days prior. Ended up getting his something else for his birthday and I put the scanner, birthday wrapped and all, in a box with some old photos. Yesterday, my wife decides to clean out the closet. Needless to say there is the scanner, brand new in the box. So, my question is: Is this thing any good? There's been a lot of changes since 1992. I'm not a scanner person so I know little about how to operate it and it appears to be quite complicated. My neghbor mentions something about 'trunked' radio frequencies and that I probably would pick up much. What say you. Your help is most appreciated.
