Episode Info

Episode Info:

This is a question I see often on websites like Radio Reference and on Facebook Groups.

How do I find the correct scanner for me?

Or - I just bought this radio, will it work?

Or - Why can't I hear my local police, what is wrong with my new radio?

Or - How come nobody told me this wouldn't work!?!?


Today we'll decode some of the information in the Radio Reference Database so you can pick the right scanner for your area.

I also have a nice script in the session notes that you can use if you want to ask others what scanners work for them in your area.


You can find more info on our website at
