I need to know what kind of scanner would help in a disaster. I have not had a scanner in 15 years and am not up to date with what I will hear and what is "blocked". Thank you.
What all can I hear on something like this? Thank you!Here is your cat's meow..........

I would recommend this radio also. Get the software package. It makes it -much- easier to use and adds tremendous functionality.
You will need a good antenna. I have one of these:
A quality piece of equipment. :thumb:
I had an Icom R7000 all-mode receiver hooked up to a computer...deadly.
Not much...! :Okay, what can't I hear? Thanks! Software Package?
Thank you for your help! Can you just hear the airport, police, fire?Being in the DFW area, your gonna have a ton of stuff to listen to. Thing is that there are several different trunking systems out there and seems that alot of the departments in the DFW area are on different systems. And Dallas is still currently using a conventional system on 460 Mhz. I have a friend that lives in Tarrant County and has 3 scanners. Primarily listens to things in the Ft Worth area and the DFW airport. But he does have one scanner that has some Dallas stuff in it. He just doesn't listen to Dallas all that often. Also check the website RadioReference.com for info on scanners and frequencies.
