Chris that is a receiver or scanner it doesnt transmit so it needs more power isnt the case
I had to be right at the airport to get any reception and I had the squelch turned all the way down. Keep in mind this was with the antenna provided. I did have a fresh set of batteries installed. I use it to test my ELT and radio. If you want to hear traffic away from the airport, buy something with more power.
This is a great little scanner after I figured out the manual. The buttons arent very intuitive, but they work as advertised when you learn the tricks. Turning the power on and off requires holding down the red button for two seconds. But if you quickly press the red button, it locks the device. I did this on the first power up and it took me a while to figure out why the unit wasnt working. The Scan function works well. Today I set it up to scan ground control, tower, and approach so I could listen to all the action.
A great receiver for the money! I live close to EWN and receive excellent reception on both sides of the transmission. I highly recommend this receiver!
Per the manufacturer, while the antenna connector for the Airband Scanner is an SMA type, with the adapter, you can connect this scanner to a BMC connected antenna if you wish.
Per the distributor, The TCS-100RA does have a squelch control and this device takes 3 double-A batteries. It can also use a Generic 9V AC-DC adapter (not included).
No, standard airband channels only.
