Thanks for the info about your scanner. An eBay seller has them, new, for $225 plus shipping. Your results, compared to mine, prove that you get what you pay for (and not much more).

Although your model Uniden is still being sold on eBay, it appears that Uniden is no longer making that particular model. Thanks, though, for letting me know about Uniden. I just bought a new Uniden BC72XLT for $80 at Fry's, and it works beautifully. Uniden makes several more expensive scanners with special features that are useful to listeners who want to scan police, fire and other emergency frequencies. Those features, though, aren't necessary for ATC scanning, so the BC72XLT's more limited feature set is all that I need. It's features include a squelch that works perfectly, an ability to store 100 frequencies in groups of 10, and an ability to automatically scan within a group. This means that I can store the tower, ground and clearance frequencies for an airport, and the scanner will auto-scan all three. I live about 2 and 1/3 miles from the Santa Monica Airport, though not within line-of-sight of its tower, and I'm sitting at my desk, with the BC72XLT at my side, and I'm listening to the Santa Monica Airport tower, using just the six-inch antenna that came with the scanner!
