Radio Shack Pro-197 (GRE PSR-600) Picture Review

Below are pictures of the Radio Shack Pro-197 digital scanner.  For review information please see my review of the PSR-500 which is basically the same radio, just a different case.  The Pro-197 does seem to perform better for VHF-High and 800 MHz reception in my area.  But the functions of the Pro-197 (PSR-600) is the same as the PSR-500 (Pro-106).  The main difference between the GRE PSR-500 and 600 vs the Pro-197 and 106 is that the GRE PSR models come with programming cables and AC adapters for the handhelds (AC adapters for both 600 and 197) while the Pro models do not.
