Hi all, My old Radio Shack scanner was dropped the other day and hasn't worked since. I've been researching scanners and came across the HP. Is there anyone in the CS/El Paso county area using this unit? It almost sounds to good to be true. I had my Pro-2096 and enjoyed listening but didn't like the programming part. I am only a casual user not a hardcore hobbyist. I'm mainly interested in police, fire and ems Does anyone have any comments on it's use and reception in my area?
Yes, I did get a HomePatrol. It's been working great for me. If you are using the antennae that came with it I would lose that and get a shorter rubber type of antennae at Radio Shack. That one seems to work better than the one that comes with it. I'm not sure what they're called. I have my scanner set to a 10 mile radius and get all of what I need. I also set it up to skip a lot of channels. I really don't need to hear all the snowplow info at all hours of the night. If you have anymore questions let me know.
