Without an external outside antenna it will miss a lot of transmissions. Also, it does not scan programmed frequencies, only banks of frequencies.December 16, 2019Purchased
1 month agoResponse from Sporty's Pilot ShopThank you for the review. Scanning the programmed frequencies can be done by pressing the Aviation interrupt button. This can be done in any mode (FM, AM, Airband, BT or AUX).December 16, 2019Doug RDurability3 / 5Reliability3 / 5Performance1 / 5Ease Of Use2 / 5Value2 / 5DissapointedI live in a fairly large city with multiple civilian and military airports. This scanner couldn't pick anything up.December 14, 2019Purchased
1 month agoResponse from Sporty's Pilot ShopThank you for the review. The Air Scan II will only scan civilian VHF frequencies 118-137. The military UHF frequencies are much higher. Also, rather than scanning the entire frequency band, program the local CTAF and ATC frequencies into the memory. Scanning the 10 memory channels will provide more reception of transmissions.December 16, 2019Doug RDurability4 / 5Reliability4 / 5Performance4 / 5Ease Of Use4 / 5Value4 / 5Would You Recommend?YesGreat ScannerInstructions are somewhat minimal; Well built. Reception range is modest at best.December 13, 2019Purchased
