Thanks for the info !I reviewed one a while back when they first came out. Quirky keypad, huge frequency coverage, unique for its time silver color scheme and lots of memories. And yes, it does have an inversion descrambler.
As a scanner, I was only moderately impressed. Not particularly clear audio, nor a super hot receiver. Overall, its OK, nothing spectacular like the AR8000 or MTV7100 (contemporary scanners of around the same age)
