I had one also, it worked well. It can be made even better by sending it into Mr.Bill to have his mod's done on it http://www.surfscanner.com/Surfscan3/ClassicPage.html

They are good detectors, it's probably early to mid 90's era if its a SL model. I used a Classic ID which is basically the same thing with a simple LCD meter and found a ton of stuff.
