Scanners are effective ways to tune in many of the commonly used frequencies in your local area. Because a scanner constantly seeks active signals, this allows you to listen in to breaking news as it happens.
Police, fire, ambulance, aircraft, weather and ship-to-shore communications are a few of the listening experiences available. Scanners are also the fastest and most reliable sources of local news, intrigue and drama. During catastrophes, the information available on a scanner could actually save your life. You will be awed by the heroism displayed by our public servants during emergencies. Almost all scanners have an instant weather button.
Important: Though it is not illegal to sell or own a scanner, please observe the Privacy Act which prohibits anyone from relaying information obtained from any private transmission to another person. It is illegal to listen to cellular phone calls. Certain states outlaw the use of scanners in an automobile. Please contact your local police agency if you are not sure of the laws in your area.
Our handheld scanners are fairly easy once you learn how to use them. However, they can be a bit complex at first. As with all our products, we offer over the phone coaching and we'll help you enter a few frequencies to get you started with your new scanner. To ensure the farthest range and best reception possible, we recommend our scanner antennas to improve any scanner.
