Chris that is a receiver or scanner it doesnt transmit so it needs more power isnt the case

This is a great little scanner after I figured out the manual. The buttons arent very intuitive, but they work as advertised when you learn the tricks. Turning the power on and off requires holding down the red button for two seconds. But if you quickly press the red button, it locks the device. I did this on the first power up and it took me a while to figure out why the unit wasnt working. The Scan function works well. Today I set it up to scan ground control, tower, and approach so I could listen to all the action.

A great receiver for the money! I live close to EWN and receive excellent reception on both sides of the transmission. I highly recommend this receiver!

This thing eats batteries like theyre going out of style! Ive bought three different nine volt chargers but when connected the scanner doesnt seem to recognize them and they do not power the scanner for some reason. Reception is okay but I had to use the antenna from my Sportys radio to hear anything outside of the traffic pattern. Overall, this was a waste of money. I miss my 9 dollar Radio Shack VHF transistor radio. -)

I had to be right at the airport to get any reception and I had the squelch turned all the way down. Keep in mind this was with the antenna provided. I did have a fresh set of batteries installed. I use it to test my ELT and radio. If you want to hear traffic away from the airport, buy something with more power.

Not worth the money. I get almost 0 reception aside from the weather report and sporadic 1 broken channel if the weather is right that’s it poor design and crap reception would not recommend this radio to anyone. Just a piece of junk 200.00 that could have been better spent Do NoT buy unless you want t9 be disappointed
