Re: R.S. Cat Scanner



I confirm Bob's e-mail as to the availability of the scanner [I haven't
hooked mine up yet, either]..  Further, Radio Shack will be getting adapters
in to allow the scanner to interface with the computer  through an USB port.
RS is not charging for the scanners!

According to my local RS manager the adapters should be available this week.

Interesting idea.
