No I have not gotten one yet. I could not take it to work so I would not consider it part of my EDC. All of this I take every where.

How well does that police scanner work? How much did it cost? What kind of battery life do you get from it? Can you pick up ambulance and fire wavelengths too?

It works great, It cost $100. It has rechargeable batteries and can last about two days be for it goes dead but you can put in four normal AA batteries. It picks up police,fire,ambulance,air,marine,weather and HAM. I programed the local ones so it is faster and I don't miss anything.

Yeah, but what's the make/model and where did you get it?
Does your BOB at least have: water, basic tools, fire, food, first-aid kit, and shelter?

Found it on their website, $99.99:

Here's another that looks like it's just as good, $29.99:

Well where were you when I bought it? LOL That one was not there and I didn't feel like waiting. I probably could find one that looks like the same thing for $9.99 lol. It is a nice thing to have, Anyone have one as well?
