Hey Gump, as far as I'm concerned these new scanners and some of the frequencies are a nightmare.
As an example, the other day I had to bring my portable scanner to get it updated because of some term called "rebanding". Providence, RI was the one that I needed to have done. SO I THOUGHT. When I get it to the radio repair shop he says "Boston FD, and the Connecticut State Police have also been rebanded. When I asked what is the price for that he said "normally we get $20.00 a channel. WOW, sixty bucks just to get it updated. And I didn't even know about Boston. I could have went up there some 100 miles away to buff and not heard anything. Thats what had happened to me when I went to Providence.
For me, the days of simply pushing a few buttons to get the right frequency are over. Now its digital stuff, encrept messages, and you need a degree in computer techonolgy to program them.
And just to let you know, the guy ended up only charging me $20.00 to do that update. I can't tell you where because if his boss finds out, he'll probadly get fired.
