VHF Airband Receiver
This receiver, specially designed for the VHF airband, couples decent performance to simple construction, all at an affordable price. It does not contain exotic parts and may be adjusted without special instruments, so we reckon the design makes an ideal entry-level receiver for aviation enthusiasts with two feet firmly on the ground.Eavesdropping on police, ambulance and fire brigade communications, to mention but a few examples, is a hobby with a persistent attraction to many. This has been the case ever since these services started using unprotected mobile communications. The exact reasons for the ‘addiction’ are hard to pinpoint. Curiosity, of course, but there’s more to it. A possible enticing factor is that scanner listening is somewhere in the twilight zone between ‘illegal’ and ‘allowed’, which no doubt adds to the excitement enjoyed by many scanner enthusiasts.
