So I was out on a mission the other day and we had a guy from another squadron go  out with us. We brought our L-Per and a handheld scanner and he brought his Tracker. Once we finally got an ELT signal we went out and DF'd it. With my handheld Radio Shack scanner, I was able to go directly to the source with no problems, whereas the guy with the Tracker headed off in the other direction because that's where his Tracker told him to go. So once again, I'll choose my basic scanner with body blocking over a fancy new DF unit. And since we were in a town, we didn't even bother with the L-Per which probably would've been useless with all the reflections.

Agree to the MAX!  I love the L-Per, but a body block can do wonders!
