Reading around in most forums I see most scanners made are talked about but never see anything on a pro160. (unless I missed it) I picked up one from RS for 99.00 and was wondering if I should have. Seems to be working fine, was just wondering
I like the 162 (hand held Version of the 160) Its a really nice readio, solid and a uniden made radio for the "shack".
When the Pro-160 finaly came out, it's portable little brother, the Pro-162, was already out for at least a year.
Anywho, the radio does not exactly match the performance of the 162.
Another thing that bothers me even with the Pro-162, why go through the trouble of adding the 6.25 Khz. steps but leave out the 7.5 Khz. steps?
The 15 has much better sensitivity,selectivity,audio, and the tunning steps and modes are not fixed.
If you want a scanner as a back up,secondary radio, then the 160 is ok. I would not make it my main work horse though. Just my 2 cents worth.
