I'm new to scanning and want to buy a scanner that can cover the maxium range. I've noticed that many scanners do not go further than 900 mhz when there is an amateur range up to 1300 mhz so can anyone advise me on which one to buy and can you hear amateur tv audio on these scanners. Also should I consider handheld devices as well as base ? Could handheld get amateur tv. I've noticed many handhelds go up to 1300. Although as these are smaller units would they suffer from poor image rejection. Thanks.
