You didn't say what you're listening to, but IMO the short answer is yes, get the PSR 500. The long answer is really much more complicated and I would suggest that you spend some time searching and reading on this site. There have been some pro and con comparisons made for these scanners in several threads.mlevin312 said:i HAVE A pro 96 which is ok but I'm not in love with it. I'm adding a 2nd radio and was considering the gre handheld instead of another pro 96. Would this be a smart decision?
The PSR-500 comes with the A/C adapter ("wall wart") and the GRE USB programming cable.mlevin312 said:I'm getting ready to purchase a PSR 500 from scanner master. Does anyone know if the unit comes with a power cord since it's not listed on site? Also will the pro 96 power cords work on the PSR 500?
Actually, you may be able to get away with an "underpowered" wall wart, if you don't charge the batteries in the scanner. That would shave about 150 mA off the current requirement. For example, the Sony adapter I'm using is only "rated" for 300 mA at 9VDC. It doesn't get warm, and the scanner indicates 9.8 V on the "Battery Info" page, with the backlights on.Landman said:Just check the voltage, milliamps, and polarity and if they match, go for it. Remember the milliamps don't need to match exactly but the number has to be at least the same or higher as the one on the wall wart that came with the scanner.
I dunno, Ghost. Your tagline says that you have a PRO97 and a PRO2055 which are essentially the same radio. Think of me as having a portable and a mobile--except that my mobile sits in a cupholder and uses its attached antenna. <g>Ghost4658 said:
