Set by this scanner many a night/day. Wish I still had it....had one, found some
I've still got at least one of those RCA scanners. Nice radio; the delay feature was pretty ahead of it's time.

Took this GE Search 2Plus2 off the shelf tonight. My dad bought me a GE Search when I was a young kid. That was many, many, well a lot of years ago. A couple of weeks later he walk in with this one for himself. We had a great time listening to public safety back then. He past away 15 years ago and I found this while cleaning up some of his belongings. I disassembled it and gave it a once over to make sure in was still in good running order. After some cleaning of the controls, I fired it up and it is works great. I wish I had not sold the one he gave me.

I still hold on to my stepdad's mobile 2meter because of the sentimental value of it. By the way I discovered tons and tons of old scanners on Goodwill's online auction site. They aren't big sellers. You gotta watch out for shipping charges though, not the price- these old things are heavy and shipping runs into some money if you don't estimate it first.

There's this Japanese lady that had the Spark Joy thing, remember that craze last yr or so?? She got people to clearing out all their old stuff- they hang on to things because of emotions or whatever. She had the person "thank" the thing for it's "valuable service" before disposing of it. It sounds kind of fruity but I can see how that mental thing works you know. I think if the old 2 meter of my stepdad's found a really good home, I'd be ok with parting with it. https://www.eham.net/friends/displaystory/1239

I dig your old scanner - is it the kind that takes crystals? doesn't look like the type that does- without googling it, looks like a pretty fine one indeed.
