New scanner added to the collection 

Remember that sale I mentioned at Radio Shack a few days ago? Well I just couldn't resist and now there is yet another scanner in the collection. I haven't quite decided yet if I want to spend the five hundred dollars that would enable me to listen to my neighbors to the north in Westmoreland County on their new trunked digital system. I did however arrive at the conclusion that at one hundred and forty nine dollars the PRO-97 was just too good to pass up.

I called the store that I normally deal with in Lower Burrell and asked if the PRO-97 price was just a one day deal for Thanksgiving and was told that it would be available at that price until Christmas. I asked them to put one aside with my name on it which they did and I picked it up on Friday. Despite the fact that it is a holiday weekend I haven't had a lot of time to play with it at this point. I just downloaded the WIN97 program this afternoon to program it and hope to give it a workout tonight and tomorrow. My first impression is that this is going to become my everyday “carry” radio as I like what I have seen so far. I will write up some additional details after I have some experience with the radio.
