Technicians Repair And Modification Notes For Hundreds Of Police Scanners! *Fourth Edition*

The ORANGE BOOK OF SCANNER REPAIR was named after lobbyists for the cellular phone industry "turned orange" (raging mad) hearing about scanner users listening in on their "bought-with-bribes" frequencies. Unfortunately: the information on scanner modifications for cellular phone coverage shown in this book can only be used to de-modify scanners in the United States (since the February 1997 FCC ruling making cellular modification a federal offense punishable by a $10,000 fine)! Hobbiests & repairmen will still find specific repair notes on nearly 500 scanners by make & model. order it now!! $25.00 + P&H
