Recently I purchased the RS Pro 652, since I've always wanted a police scanner, it looked like a good one at Radio Shack. Then I saw the user-unfriendly instructions. Not one part of this did I understand and felt I landed on another planet. Then it says the best way to program it is to use a special cable, which not one Radio Shack in the county sold, and I tried them all. I looked online and found this overpriced 'specialized' cable for about $80. What a total scam! I received the cable with instructions in another language-not English. Uploaded the software CD and still have no clue what it's supposed to do. What a nightmare. If I'd known Radio Shack was this sneaky and devious I never would have purchased it. I still have not brought in any signal but the weather channel. I can see this will be a full time job learning to program it. I wish I got another brand. Does anyone have any ideas other than bringing it back and taking the company to small claims since it was on sale?
