Most of us have a favorite radio scanner, either one of the modern models or something vintage with a few more miles on the clock. That said I’ve also paid good money for absolute nightmare scanners over the years and pretty sure I can,t be the only one.

Its time for you to stand up and be counted with this simple 2 question poll, just tell us the best and worst scanner you’ve ever owned 🙂

I’ve kicked things off with the Yupiteru MVT-7100 as the best and the horrible Maycom AR-108 as the worse.

Got to say, we’re really looking forward to seeing how the poll works out once there’s enough answers to fill out the top twenty. All the results are laid out further down this page.

Feel free to leave a comment at the bottom of your page to praise or vent on your choices, just try to keep it clean 🙂

All information entered is completely anonymous, there,s no cookie tracking or anything else going on that tags you to any answer you may give.

    I’m medically disabled so radio transmetting from 11 meters (cb) and listening on scanners has been a fun hobby for quite some time. Now, I am preparing for a HAM license, and I’ll also be purcahsing the new iCOM IC-R8600 10 kHz ~ 3 GHz widebad with all of the new digital formats. It isn’t scheduled for release until sometime in 2017 here in the USA, but that’s okay. I suspect it will be expensive but I’m home 95-percent of the time, so it’s either this or going crazy.

      Hey Daniel

      Going for your ham ticket opens up so many sides to hobby radio that you’ll have plenty of things to fill your time with.

      All the best with the exam

    They went digital where I live in Louisiana and now on my old analog I can’t pickup cops, fire, nothing anymore. Listened to it always. As anything changed where maybe one day I can get my frequencies back? Thanks

    • Carl says:

      Once they’ve gone over to secure digital transmissions I don’t see things ever going back, I’m sorry to say.

      There’s just no incentive to roll back to an older system. I know its no consolation but your among a vast amount of people facing the same problem.
