    Hello have £100 and would like tj know what recommendations anyone has on a amateur scanner that I can listen to aircraft, will I be able to listen fro home or will I need to be in a certain range? Had one when I was a kid bit that was back in the analogue days and pre www!!! So thought I'd seek advice before spending my cash !?

    Re: Airband scanner

    I would probably recommend getting a good reconditioned radio which will be much cheaper than a brand new one but it will work just as well.

    I don't have one at the moment but I used to have the Yupiteru 125 and the Yupiteru 225. Both were exceptionally good and seem to last just about forever. I had mine for over a decade. So far as I know the brand is still going and they are still making airband radios.

    I'm not up to date with the latest versions or other brands so I can only speak for the Yupiteru.

    Hi,

    Did you ever get sorted with your scanner?

    Any new developments in this field. Looking for a scanner around £100 for Christmas.

    Happy to go re-conditioned, but could someone point me in the best direction to source one of these.

    Thanks.
