I live near Mobile and thought the Home Patrol 2 was going to be the new great scanner. I am very disappointed in Uniden as it pick up very little. My cell phone free app at least will pick up most of the fire call but the scanner just sits. I feel i have it programmed correct and I even did the extreme upgrade and have tried multiple antennas still very little chatter on the scanner. I did put it in the truck and a few more conversations there but not even in Mobile county for the most part. Anyone around Mobile, AL know any local info.
