Buying a scanner at Oshkosh

Recommended Posts

Ok, I've been here at Oskhosh a couple of days now and I'm still trying to locate a seller of scanners. I figured Uniden would have been here and also that scanners would be much cheaper here than back home in Finland. However I haven't found Uniden in the exhibitors list at www.airventure.org or in any Hangar. So I wonder if any of you guys are at the show and perhaps have seen any Uniden products. It doesn't really have to be an Uniden scanner but I figured they are good value. Mind you, I am no pilot - just a sim pilot who likes to listen to atc talk in order to improve my VATSIM-skills!Grateful for any ideas,

I bought a Radio Shack Pro-71 off Ebay for $80.00. Works great, covers entire air band.Mike

Thanks a lot for your helpful answers guys! I will check it out tomorrow especially since it seems like the weather will not improve tomorrow here in Oshkosh. It's raining cats and dogs!/Krister

Not sure how easy they are still to get, but one of the all time BEST Scanners, is the Uniden Bearcat BC200XLT, Nice handheld scanner, that does all you'll need it to do.

If you haven't already, check out the ICOM dealer in Hanger B. They have some nice stuff there... :)

Hi Bill!Indeed I talked to the LCOM dealer there and I was about to buy their most basic one (just for listening, not talking). However at approx 230 USD (335 USD here in Finland) I decided that a Uniden Bearcat 120 XLT costing 200 USD would be a better buy for me. And a word of advice, never get close to the Maycom AR-108. I can barely recieve a signal although I'm standing 10 meters from the sending antenna (the tower at the local airport)...On a totally other note, Oshkosh was incredible fun!!! Didn't know the Hercules could take off and bank like that!
