Hans flew to Finland in the beginning of August and brought his old pen-size airband receiver. It did not work at all. So before his next flight he decides to get a new airband radio, preferable a scanner.
Instead of going for an all band receiver like Icom R6 he decides to buy a dedicated air band scanner. The EZI33XLT is bought 2018-08-21 from Limmared Radio for 795 SEK.
Serial No: 78000093
The included rubber duck antenna is good for operation on the go. But for better reception this extendable 1/4 wave, telescopic whip antenna is superior. The antenna is bought 2018-08-21 from Limmared Radio for 295 SEK.

The instruction specifies an antenna length of 56 cm for 120 MHz. This is equal to 3 sections and an additional 3 cm.
Hans' small air band receiver is not working. He buys a cheap multi-band receiver instead.
The receiver has been unused for many years. When Hans inserts batteries and switch it on, he realizes that it is of no use. The volume and squelch potentiometers are faulty and there seem to be no selectivity. Many channels are heard simultaneously.
Hans leave the receiver for recycling.
Hans starts travelling by airplane quite frequently and wants an air band receiver. World Import in Stockholm has exactly what he wants; a small receiver that can be kept in the shirt pocket.
The receiver has no loudspeaker and no volume control.
The catalog is from 1976.
After trying to use the receiver on a flight in August, Hans discover that no signals can be received. It is left for recycling
