I am looking into getting a radioshack scanner for my grandfather who has been using scanners for as long as I can remember. Lately he has been talking about wanting a new one since everything went to digital, and my wife and I are going to get him one for his bday. However, I know nothing about scanners, and want to suprise him with a new scanner, so I am looking for direction on which way to go. Price is not issue, but I am not interested on spending a fortune. Any help and direction is GREATLY appreciated!! PS the easier for me to understand the better so I can help him.
