In addition to using the usual BC-780 in the car, I also tried out the Uniden HP-1 Home Patrol for MilAir yesterday.  I was very impressed with with Home Patrol in the 225-400 MHz range, unlike other Uniden base/mobile scanners such as the BCD796 and BCD996.  The Home Patrol compares favorably to the Uniden BC-780, which is one of  my favorite MilAir scanners and the Uniden BCD396 which also works well on MilAir.
