    Pocket Sized!
    I bought this receiver a few years ago to take to airshows. It is easy to use, fits in your shirt pocket and runs forever on a set of batteries. I don't have to worry about accidentally hitting the transmit key while walking around the airshow either!

    Great Scanner
    Great scanner. This radio was built for the aviation enthusiast. It is great for listening when close to an airport or for getting your ATIS information prior to walking out to an airplane. It fits nicely in your pocket or in any flight bag.

    Good radio for the price am currently doing my PPL and this got Me a headstart in radio communication skills I normally go to our aiport to listen in to pilot atc communications The dual listen function is quite good as it allows one to tune to two frequencies at the same time and is quite handy. The only draw back is the lack of transmit capability hence it will offer limited backup in the event of comms failure

    Maycom AR108 A great little scanner
    This unit is much smaller than I had pictured and has been working well since it arrived. The Scan and Dual Watch features work well and the battery life seems good so far. Of course I would like a little more range, but I'd probably say that about any unit. I work next to an airport and it is coping fine even when surrounded by the steel and concrete of our office. It was delivered with the wrong manual but this was easily remedied.

    Excellent radio receiver for the price. Small enough to fit in a shirt pocket. Takes 2 AA batteries which last about 32 hours of operation. Can be set to a single channel, can scan all aviation frequencies (108.0000-136.9750) or can be set to scan 99 preset frequencies. Also can pick up the weather broadcasts with the press of a button. A great receiver for the price.

    Works well
    I wanted to listen to ATC/pilot transmissions as a student pilot. This is perfect for that purpose. Saving and recalling frequencies is a little tricky and some just don't seem to save. But I have the local tower frequency and ATIS saved and listen while driving around town. It will not pick up transmission from the airport unless you are within a mile or so. Pilot transmissions come in from farther as the planes are higher up.

    Great Little Scanner
    I bought the Air band scanner to monitor the local LA/OC airports and it does a great job. Even with the built-in antenna, it's seems very sensitive.

    TSC-100RA Scanner
    I replaced my ICOM transceiver with this scanner to monitor my local airport traffic while outside working on my motorcycle. It is a decent little scanner for the price. Not quite as clear and loud as the ICOM but that is to be expected.

    TSC-100 Hand-Held Airband Scanner
    Good sound when I am at my local airports. The audio from the tower is good. The audio from the pilots, either communicating with ground or tower, is good. Sometimes the audio isn't clear from the pilots, which is expected in some cases. I am impressed with ATIS audio.

    Great little radio!
    It took a little bit to get used to entering and exiting the different modes, but once you get the hang of it, it's easy. Great sound for such a small speaker. My only wish is that it received commercial AM broadcasts between 550-1700 kHz.

    A tremendous
    I took it out of the box and assembled it. I turned the power on and then turned the knob to the ATC frequency for our area which I had looked up beforehand. Bingo! All kinds of aviation radio traffic. And quite impressive sound for a unit that is truly small. also very nice performance at the end of the runway of the largest international airport in our area. For simplicity of operation, compactness, and performance, this unit is an excellent buy. I bought as a gift for my son but now I want one of my own!
