A good scanner? Hmm... too many to list. But the #1 on my list is a Realistic PRO-2006 gapless frequency scanner. This scanner has no limitations to what it can scan. It scans HF/FM/AM/VHF/UHF/Air/TAC/Marine VHF/GMRS/CB/SSB/USB/LSB/WX. Hell, it even scans the FM and AM bands (the music bands). It's frequency range is up in the 1300 MHz range and is probably the only scanner you'll ever need. If it's too pricey, my second recommendation is a Regency MX4000. The Regency MX4000 is a good little scanner with a 950MHz range. It is not gapless however. It has 20 Memory channels and scans AM/FM/UHF/VHF/Air/Marine VHF/Mobile Phone/WX bands. It may be hard to find one because Regency went out of business a while back, but if you do find one, it may be worth your while.

Best Regards,

The best scanner for a household or small buisness is the kodak i40 scanner.  You can buy it used at amazon for record prices ($629).  The scanner features sheet-feeding which is the way printers work to feed paper.  It saves a lot of time and is so much fun to watch your pictures just scan themselves!  The scanner also comes with really great software.  Check it out at amazon.  Oh, and I would recommend getting it used from amazon because it is $200 dollars cheeper and is in perfect condition.

I want to buy some traditional sarees in this weekend so i want some online stores which are having good saree collections?

Saree is a great option to show your class in any occasions. But buying saree online needs to have some pre requisite knowledge, like fabrics, colors, quality, replacement options etc. I will suggest you to check Banarasi Niketan website. They are one of the most trusted saree selling brand of Kolkata. They have their own website. They also provide good discounts along with free shipping and easy replacement facility. Check out some of their exclusive collection of Kanchipuram sarees, Silk sarees, Handloom sarees etc.

BCD369T problem

You might be able to, if you understand how to reset the scanner's binary CPU board. But honestly, I had the same scanner with the same problem, and one way to fix it is to reprogram the entire scanner's memory. The second way is expensive, send it to a radio repair store. I'd recommend to just reprogram it and see if it works then. If no avail, you might need to have it looked at, but reprogramming it helped my problem. It's time consuming I know, but it worked.
