Considering that there isn't too much to listen to that is analogue in 2019 apart from both civilian and military aircraft this scanner is pretty much all you need. I bought it to listen to aircraft and perhaps the marine band if I am near the sea.
The gaps in it;s coverage miss out the broadcasting and mobile phone bands in the UK, so not much to miss out one there.
I have been walking about with close call active in town for a couple of days and have had hardly any hits apart from pager type noises. This is mainly because there aren't many transmissions to listen now. This is not because close call isn't very good. It works superbly.
I did pick up outside broadcasting radio mic links from the local racecourse.
However connected to my "real" antenna in the attic, I have already had a few hits on the military airband already. A first for me as my old scanner was a pain to use in that band, stopping on every little squeak. This one can scan all day in the mil air band untended and still get hits, which my old one hardly ever managed to do.
For me those mil-air hits are already worth what I paid for it and I can't wait top try it out at air displays in the coming season. I expect it will work superbly.
Save your money on that fancy high end scanner unless you really need a specialist radio for digital comms or perhaps to provide a discriminator output for SDR. This one is very nice little scanner at a good price and it pretty straight forward to use and program using a PC USB link. There is even some free software available that I think is better than the official package Uniden want you to use.
