for a Unicom. The guy behind the counter showed me this
instead. Am I glad he did. The reception is incredible to the
point of getting rid of my 3 scanners afterwards. There was no
comparison. I have the Railcom antenna. Although it got damaged
at a McDonald's Drive through, so I cut it down from it's original
44 inches to it's current 17.4 in. I find no difference. I believe
that the reception is even better when my car is in motion, as opposed
to standing still.
I had no trouble programming it(radio). I put in all 96 AAR fre-
quencies, lock them all out, and just unlock the ones I currently use.
They are all labelled, so when it stops at a frequency, I read what
the freq. is.(eg. CSX rd.,PAR tr., Boston East,etc.)
Incredible radio! Andy
