Does anyone out here know who or where I can get a hand held scanner fixed?

I had on older Radio Shack unit and I decided it was better money to go ahead and buy a new one. I got more channels for less than I paid for the first. Unless you've paid more than $300 for a very good scanner, you might be is a similar situation.

I guess it depends on what exactly needs done to it. Radio Shack might be able to repair it for you, especially if it's one of their brands. It's a $20 down payment to have it sent in and looked at, and if they decide it's fixable, they'll apply your $20 to the repair bill. I also know of a place in Bryan, OH, that I've used a few years ago when I had an old Bearcat. It was a hole-in-the-wall type place, but they fixed me up cheap. It was like a junk shop in the front, but the back was a CB/electronics shop. The local taxi company is run out of there as well. Corner of Mulberry and Cherry streets I think. I'm not sure if it's still open anymore, but I can find out.
