According to the RR database (Opelika Trunking System, Opelika, Alabama - Scanner Frequencies), they're a standard Motorola system with both analog and digital radios. Any of the current model digital scanners should work for them. These will be the higher end scanners though so expect to pay around $400 - $600 for them. There may be some sales that bring the price down a bit lower due to the holiday season.

The RS models are the Pro-106, Pro-197, and Pro-18. The GRE models are the PSR-500, PSR-600, and PSR-800. The Uniden models are the BCD396XT, BCD996XT, and HP-1.

As I indicated, there may be some sales going on as shown inthis thread PSR-800 Black Friday Special

There are also times when refurbished models (generally like new, but often with shorter warranty) are available like this one http://www.radioshack.com/product/in...uctId=10919578

Seem like Opelika re-banded today November 7 2013.

The "T" on my Gre psr-800 display stopped flashing. Heard "radio repair" keying up lots yesterday.

Got to fix this asap. HELP?

Update the SD card, or, just replace the frequencies on the card.

A Pro-96 seems to work ok on Opelika's TRS.
FCC DB shows them to be using 20K0F3E / Wideband Analog Emission.
If they are running both analog & digital voice they should have both an analog & digital emission designator.
I guess they forgot to update their emission designator.

Frequency 855.4125 doesn't appear to be a valid freq. It's not listed in the FCC DB.

After reading for 6 hours yesterday, many searches, youtube videos I managed to update to 1.08 firmware. As far as I know nothing else was updated or reprogrammed.
Long story short. Wife is happy to be listening to our son as he patrols.
The psr-800 started working on its on at 10:00 today.
Thanks for the help. I've learned that I have a lot to learn about ez scan.
