Sunbull , Your're right ! I just turned 1 on for the first time in several years ! Only 22 channels as you said . Hey the battery's still hold a charge , I don't want to have to replace them again , I remember them being expensive . But I called Midland when they went dead & the nice Lady sent me a set for Free ! That ain't gonna happen again ! When these are dead .... time for the Garbage Can !
