125'S work well, as long as you throw away the stock aerial.

Some advice please People ..
after spending 2 out of 3 days on the Hill with no idea if anything was on route .. (I know the Hawks and Hercs rarely call in and the tornadoes just "drop in")
I've found the Uniden Bearcat EZI33XLT .. on eBay .. Any good ?

No good for military listening mate you need one that covers the 230-400 range like a bearcat 3500xlt or similar

Just to put in another option - a second hand Yupiteru MVT 7100.

I recently changed to one of these after noticing for quite a while that they seemed to outperform my Bearcat 3500 on the hills. Used it for the first time earlier this week and VERY impressed.

Obviously you're buying second hand, but there are good ones available if you wait and keep an eye on Ebay

I don't know about these things ..
All I'd do is monitor NATO Low fly as that's where they seem to always call in on entry (when I've heard others)
but thank you Gareth and Alchad .. it's much appreciated

I have two MVT7100 and the UBC125XLT, the Yupis ALWAYS out perform the bearcat for reception. Rob will probably second that too.

I normally take a uniden3500xlt and a yupiteru mvt7100 to the loop and find they work well as a double act. The bearcat's faster scanning allows it to lock on first then the yupi joins in with its superior sound quality. If i was only taking one scanner, i'd probably take the yupi and put up with some missed callsigns. But then the bearcat is significantly lighter.......

Post UBC 3500XLT 
Does anyone have a file that I could import into this scanner please with the latest frequencies relevant to the loop.
If not,a list of the latest frequencies I could program in myself.
Im after the main loop related frequencies plus some air to air to keep me occupied in loop land
Many thanks in advance

I've tried the link to the frequencies but is seems to have expired.
so if anyone has a link to a current file that would be great
