    Would somebody please recommend a Uniden Handheld scanner that has 800MHz and NFM? Analog only is just fine, we're a bit backward here in California's second smallest county. Thanks, PP

    I lost the ability to pick up MNPD or NFD on my mobile this week. I can manually pick up a channel but it won't single out a transmission from the Scan bank. Did the whole system go Encrypted today? Or did some control channels change? Anyone else having similar issues?
