If you are looking for a great Christmas gift for your favorite radio hobbyist this could be the one. I will write up a more detailed review of the PRO-97 over the next few days. It is not perfect and does have some drawbacks. As I have said though I am pleased enough with it that it has become my everyday “carry” scanner for my commute to, and use while at work.
I asm interested in the hobby, but it's an overwhelming and complicated one and I want to start in a place that will pull me in and turn me on, not kill me with complexity and frustration. So I want a handheld I can grow into as i learn, not one I'll get bored with in a few months.
