Can anyone recommend an inexpensive (under $100) scanner that works well for railroad frequencies? I have been looking at a Uniden BC75xlt. I've had too much trouble with Radio Shack scanners so I don't want to go that route. And I realize I am limiting myself by going cheap, but it's all I want to spend at this time.
