I have a uniden BCT-12, not sure about range or what not. I am actually selling the thing on eBay next week.

There is a new hand held one that Dado has that you can works for digital, the one I have now only works for analog.

hell, you can just use it as enjoyement if you want.

Often times cops don't have their radar turned on, or they use laser....know their location, how many there are..etc etc etc
