1 month agoResponse from Sporty's Pilot ShopThank you for the review. Scan memory channels is done by using the Aviation Interrupt function. While on any source, simply press the Aviation Interrupt button and the unit scans your memory channels.April 9, 2019Doug RDurability1 / 5Reliability1 / 5Performance1 / 5Ease Of Use3 / 5Value3 / 5Would You Recommend?NoI Returned it and revived full credit - including shipping. it did not have good reception and Tried several busy frequencies - no reception.

1 month agoDurability3 / 5Reliability2 / 5Performance1 / 5Ease Of Use4 / 5Value1 / 5Would You Recommend?NoPoor quality performanceI intended to replace a Bearcat 220 which I have owned for nearly 40 years. It was repaired one time and finally gave up about two months ago. I bought the Sporty's Air Scan Radio/Scanner in the hope that it would make a good replacement. So far it has not! While the Bearcat 220 received acceptable audio from aircraft on the ground and in the air on the UNICOM frequency utilizing the small antenna attached to the unit. The Air Scan does not. On ground communications are garbled. In flight communications are also not as clear as the old unit. I plan to install an actual aircraft antenna, higher in the building; however, to say the least, I am not happy with my purchase at this time.March 13, 2019Purchased
