Whole bunch. OSP and some area of Clark use the ohio MARC'S system which is a large digital system. Check it out here.

Yes. You just can't use it to further a crime.

Yes they are legal. One thing to note is if you are pulled over its a curtesy to turn it off or down. But I don't think that'll happen.

There are many frequencies and trunk systems you can hear from Fairborn. Check out the Ohio county pages in RadioReference for Greene, Montgomery, Clark, and possibly Miami.

As far as Trunk Systems:

Ohio MARCS (800MHz)
Ohio MARCS-IP (700MHz)
Wright-Patterson AFB
Greene County
Montgomery County
City of Dayton

Just about everything in the RRDB for this area is included in the Full Database on the HomePatrol.
