Hi,

I am looking for 2 cheap scanners to be used in my house to scan ''service'' frequencies.( AIR, PUB) I don't need to put ANY frequencies in them, just scanning these bands...

Is the cheapest Mobile/home scanner the BC355C??

I would check Craigslist and Ebay. There are usually lots of cheap mobile/home scanners that are in good shape there. I've seen them for as low as $20.00.

Short for radio shack, although a few of my local radio shacks look like they could house rats. :lol:
exactly a term of endearment

I saw the Radio Shack PRO-404 (GRE PSR-100) on sale last weekend for $79 in a few stores, but not sure if it's still valid.

Pawn shops are a good source for older scanners. I see various Radio Shack 800MHz analog trunking handhelds at pawn shops for $40 to $100 all the time. I picked up my PRO-164 for $60 at a pawn shop.

That is an awesome deal! I use the charger with a set of $6 Harbor Freight Ni-Mh AA's that are MUCH better than the Enercells for 1/3 the price. I picked one up a few months ago when they were $14.97 after someone posted here about the deal. I called 10 stores and finally found one 30 miles away. They've been on clearance since the holidays... so they are getting very scarce now.
