i have a radioshack pro97 scanner i bought about a year ago from radioshack. it is literally like brand new. i have only used it a couple times. it has picked up columbia police while in jeff city. it works great and has a ton of features. it was about the top of the line one they had. it cost me $200. selling for $80

here is the manual for it:

heres some more info:

High-powered handheld.
High-performance, extended-coverage scanner has the ability to scan both trunked and conventional channels at the same time. Program up to 100 frequencies in banks of 10 for easier access. Triple-trunking lets you follow a signal in virtually any market that uses an analog trunking system. Signal Stalker� circuitry searches for nearby frequency transmissions and lets you hear a nearby radio without knowing its frequency. Skywarn lets you hear local severe-weather observers and get warnings before they are broadcast on local radio or TV.

* Alpha-numeric display for ID tagging allows frequencies to be identified by the name you assign
* Lighted keypad and backlit LCD display for use in low light
* Digital weather alert keeps you informed of emergencies; 7 NOAA weather stations preprogrammed
* Easy programming: download frequencies from computer to scanner (software and cable optional)

The neat stuff

* Features Signal Stalker� circuitry and Skywarn
* AM/FM mode selector
* Service search key for marine, fire/police, air, CB and HAM bands
* 1 priority channel
* Key lock prevents accidental dropping of communication
* Frequency lock-out to block unwanted frequencies
* Triple-conversion Superheterodyne receiver virtually eliminates image-type interference
* Includes: VHF Lo/Hi, UHF, VHF-Air and 800MHz
