Can anyone tell me what sort of scanner ( make, model, frequency range etc) I need to be able to receive coast guard, aviation and various "other channels" please? I have in the past bought two scanners, one like a brick which seems to receive only aircraft flying out of Wick, the other is useless altogether!:)

what are the two you have?
most scanners of even the last 25yrs will do all you list..
you might find it interesting to join the
scanproma yahoo group too.

Try here for frequencies.

I used to enjoy the scanner, but the police have moved more to mobile phones and were planning (not sure if they have yet) moving to secure digital channels make it less fun.

You can't get coastguard police or ambulance etc on the scanner anymore.

Oh yes you can.....if you know how.
But then the the wireless and telegraphy act 1949 still stands!
