I certainly defend your right to comment here, although some folks might point out, by your own admission, that you neither own nor have experience with this particular unit. As far as being the "worst" example in the history of radio receiving, I reserve that spot for the infamous KUHN 353-B. Now that was a real dog.
it dont matter if I owned the darn thing or not it has to deal with other people's experiences with it which is a convincing tool to ensure that whether or not I will buy it. I would only buy it if i just wanted an extra scanner. Thats all.
