I used to have a Regency handheld when I lived in Tamp Florida back in the late eighties. That thing worked great. I had it programmed for the Tampa city police department which had about 10 frequencies in the UHF 450 to 470 Mhz range. As you might imagine, as shady as a lot of folks are in that area of Florida ( no insult to Florida intended ) the frequencies were alive night and day with disgusting crimes and horrifying traffic infractions. Talk about entertaining, and I thought that old Regency did a great job of picking it all up!!
