I haven’t seen many scanner questions lately so now is my time to shine.
I just bought an ICOM A6 Transceiver and was having second thoughts.
I would love to have UHF for milband, but this one is strictly for civil aviation so I only get the Civil air band. It was clearly designed for pilots. While I am in training for my PPL, I would like to have a handheld with milband on it. I don't care much for the transceiver part (although knowing you could turn on airport lights is cool, but illegal
I was wondering the difference in receiving capability between mine and say a RS Pro-97 (what I am looking at now). Is their a difference in distance you can receive?
As you can tell I am new to all of this, and it is really late at night =)
Thanks for the help in advanced.
