I use the Maycom AR-108 - and am very happy with it. I bought it 2nd hand, and it's dropped at least 10 times so far, and still going strong! The reception quality is a little poor, but I'm told that will always be the case with the little rubber antennas that the handhelds ship with.

Do u get these here in India.

What is the price that is a good deal.

And yes, is it legal to own one, or does one have to scout for permissions.

The IndUS stores at BLR stock the MR-318A,a year ago it was Rs4500/-

Reception can be Improved by using a metal wire to the roof of your House.

I don't think these are available in India - I bought mine from the UK (http://www.ebay.co.uk) for something like GBP 40 (don't remember for sure now!)

I don't know if these are legal in India - never seen a rule that says either way, but given this is India, the assumption should be this is illegal!

Any lndian links or any place in India where we can pick them up.
Cos GBP 40 * 86 = Rs.3440/- seems to be a decent deal.
BTW is this GBP 40 for second hand or the brand new piece Rolling Eyes

Transreciever use requires a Licence.
Only Recievers are fine.

No - no Indian links

This was a second hand (or 3rd or 4th hand for all I know) piece, not new.

It's used from my apartment (on the 8th floor), which is about 2 kms from the airport (as the crow flies).

These are not easily available anywhere in India, but very easy to find in the western world (www.ebay.de will definitely have a few on offer). So it might be easiest for folks like DABTH and JumboJet to get it from abroad.

Not in BOM at the Moment.
The IndUs stores in BLR stocks the MR318A.

http://www.transair.co.uk
The Transair site is reliable.

Radioshack has the best handheld radio scanners to offer. I own a Pro-79 model..works very well and has excellent speakers.
I also live on the 11th floor and 2 Kms off the BOM runway. So that helps ! Very Happy

Well dont knw if the height really matters. I knew shipping a scanner to india wud be an uphill task thats why i bought my AR108 Maycom radio scanner before leaving Syd for DEL.

I am based in Faridabad very much in flight path . Del arpt is indeed abt 45mins drive frm my place in a non peak hour bt still i get amazing reception so my advice go for the maycom stuff its gud..

very very reliable. I have visited their sydney warehouse in Lancove which few kms up from North Sydney where i was putting up. I wanted this scanner on the urgent basis since the gentlemen didnt had the same available at its sydney warehouse he got the same from NZ on priority basis at no extra cost.

Mel yes he is reliable even if u place the order from Mumbai. Bt i advice before straight away going in for an online sale u contact thru email and find out whether he wud be in a condition to ship it to india..

Becoz customs here is a big drama...
