I have it, and I love it, BUT it is overkill for your area at this time, UNLESS you would be interested in listening to business type com's, including trash haulers, concrete trucks, contractors, plumbers, school buses, transportation, etc. They tend to be analog trunking, but you would have to search for them, if any, since there are none listed for your area now.
If your area does get into pulbic safety trunking, it will likely take a few years, and you could get a better scanner when that happens(they all improve every 2 yrs or so). You can't go wrong with 346, but I would still check with WA forum in case there are plans to go digital, in which case the 346 would not work. For example, U.S. Dept. of Justice: Integrated Wireless Network (IWN)
would require a digital scanner NOW, if you wanted to monitor this.
