Well, he didn't quite tell you the right thing. You can listen to anything that is analog. You won't be able to listen to any trunk system or channel/frequency that is in digital mode.
What specific systems or agencies are you trying to listen to on the scanner? Do they use digital or P25? If it does, this scanner won't do it for you unfortunately.
You are still able to use it for other types of scanning. There is a specific Wiki here on RadioReference that may help you with this radio at:
