Default Newbie question, pls advice

Hi
I know nothing about CB.
I'd like to buy some "device" that does two functions (I'm even not sure if
those exist:
-CB radio and scanner(be able to scan police frequency)
What particular model would you suggest? (not too expensive and not to big,
handheld preferable)
thanks
jazu

There was a device available 15-20 years ago that allowed you to receive 2m
band as well as CB band. FM only as i remember. But there are rx convertors
made by datong, try looking for datong on the web. GL

Try the Icom 706 series. It's not handheld, but is small and works on
12 volts.

Yaesu VX-7R handheld radio receives .05-999 Mhz and transmits
2m/440/6m/220 - best radio for travel I have ever owned. Even gets shortwave
broadcast (ok) and AM/FM radio and TV simulcast. But, CB band (11 meters) is
RECEIVE only, you cannot transmit.

Here are the specs and a pic - http://www.rigpix.com/yaesu/vx7r.htm
