    Suggestion: head over to radioreference.com, go to the forums, select the state you live in and see what suggestions those folks have for you. Great resource for all things radio.

      I have had a Uniden Bearcat BC350 for several years and have had nothing but good luck with it.

        More Info

        Need more info? Depending on the freq. your wanting to hear. In my area we are Apco 25 and require the more $$$ scanners. If your just needing 155 or lower you can get a cheaper scanner. Also how many freq. will you be scanning?

          155Mhz or lower has nothing to do with it. Any scanner, even the cheap ones, will cover the useful frequency ranges from 39 through the 800's.

          It's digital modulation (aka- P25) that brings the price up to about $500. Digital modulation can be used on any frequency.
          Even the burger-flippers at McDonald's probably have some McWackers.

            Depending on where you are and what you are going to listen to it may break you bank.
