6. Select services types (ex law dispatch)
7.Select the range in which to listen.(ex 10 miles)
Get a nice outdoor antenna and you'll be set I recommend the comet GP-15,it blows away a discone.
Its a cool scanner,if you like loud though,get an amplified speaker.
Whats nice is you can discover other things you wouldnt normally listen to,like before I had this
I didnt listen to Railroads,now I do!
Yup, it's pretty easy to use, can't get much easier! The things to watch are your Range and ATTN. Not enough range and you may not hear what you want. Turn on ATTN and you may not hear anything so be carefull not to hit that one!
