    Hi there, as far as this section goes of Glocktalk it is my first time.

    I was wondering could you guys suggest a couple of things for me?

    I am looking for a very good handheld cb with alot of power but legal of course. I mainly want it for if I am traveling somewhere and get stranded and half to walk out. Plus it would be used for other emergencies if any would arise-god forbid. I would listen to it as well.

    The other thing I was wanting was a good scanner. Listening to those is kind of interesting. Plus I am betting it would be a good source of info in an emergency. It can be either handheld or base.

    Thank you.:)

    GE used to have a really good 40 channel handheld, full legal power, but what really made it a winner was the antenna it came with. It runs off AA's IIRC. Had a dial channel changer and a hand strap. The one I had always worked great.

    But really, they are all about the same, it's the antenna that makes the radio.

    Buy a Uniden or a Radio Shack scanner, they work good. Install a nice exterior antenna for your home with a fast scanner with lots of memories. I use a 100 memory scanner for ham stuff and a 1000 memory for public safety and trunktracking.

    Uniden = Radio Shack

    Only two makers of scanners now. Uniden and AOR. AOR = $$$

    Many PD and State Police going to digital. Keep that in mind when buying.
