Will the pro-97 pickup digital frequencies?And I just wrote a detailed review of the Pro-92. Delete. Delete. Delete.
For me. No.
It doesn't trunk.
There are no alpha tags. It is just more satisfying and less confusing seeing "Police Dispatch" on the display rather than just 160.3750 MHz or whatever.
Sloooow scan rate.
No milair. Deal breaker for me.
200 channels? Not much. But then there's a lot this scanner can't hear.
You could probably get a used Pro-97 for under $100. That would be my minimum requirement. Once you get a hang of how to program and use the scanner, you will become aware of what the Pro-82 CAN NOT do.
The Pro-82 is like a 15 year old scanner being sold as new. It's like buying a cassette player instead of an Ipod. Hey, if that's how you roll, it's up to you.
