I had goten away from scanning several years ago when my area went digital but after much reading I finally ordered a new psr500 off of Ebay. It came in friday and when I started reading the manual my 1st thought was what the crap have I got into as this will take the whole weekend, but I soon discovered the ARC500 and combined it with Radio Reference and Bam ! I had this thing programed with time to kill before taking the family out for supper. Ive been tweaking the led and other settings to my taste this weekend but programing couldnt get any better and the led is an awesome option to have. Great scanner only draw back so far is I do wish the case had a more solid quality look and feel.
