sorry for your loss.. I also have the pro 2006 and still going strongThis was the handheld scanner my late husband and I carried in the late 80's and most of the 90's. It was paired with BC-760 mobile scanners in each vehicle. We had a PRO-2006 for a base station after about 1992 when it came out. We had an older Bearcat of some sort prior to the 2006. Hubby modified the 760's for faster scanning and CTCSS use. Things were pretty simple then, but programming that BC-200 as we traveled took oodles of time. Hubby would write the programs on sheets of paper and sometimes I would punch the buttons as he drove. I miss him so!!
