Still can not get any transmissions for my area. even with new antenna's on my brand new 400 dollar Uniden 436. So Looking for a local scanner that I can ferify working for my area. And it can be used. Thanks for all the help from people on this sight. That worked with me to get it working. So if you have a used one I can swap or buy would be great. But I need to verify it works for my area. Hand held or mobile I quess don not mater. thanks again to all.
