Ok, im in a toss up between the Pro 2054 and Pro 2052. Both I can get for the same price. I don't believe there is any trunking frequencies in my area (Luzerne/Columbia county, Pennsylvania). But then again, im kinda new to scanning. Anyways....I also want the ability to hook it to my computer. I already have Radioshacks USB Scanner wire. Id like to be able to download free software. Im tryin to go cheap.
Amount of channels aren't a big deal becasue their isn't over 300 channels in my area. And I don't program all of them anyway. So...max....150 channels. I did some research, but don't have alot of time on my hands. I checked some wiki's at RR, but not a whole lot that distinguished the two.

So....which one is favored more? More user flexable? Interactive? Blah Blah Blah....


Thanks guys

2052 hands down....

Trunking, true computer control available, lots of software, kick-butt milair RX, etc etc etc


The only think the 2054 would be better for is if you wanted to mount it in a car because it is DIN size, but I have used a 2053 (very close in size to the 2052) in a car so I would still choose the 2052 for mobile use.

The 2052 has a DB9 jack (RS 232). Not sure what a 2054 uses, but RR Wiki info points to the 20-047 USB cable.

Lol, it would look so OUT OF PLACE in my 99 ford Escort. I wouldn't even know were to put it.

Well then I'll get the 2052. I just wish it had alpha tags
