Hello everyone. Man radio reference is awesome. I'm gonna have to get a full account. Anyway I'm fairly new to scanning and I'm seeking experienced and educated advice. I just got a PRO 164 for Christmas. I live in Clinton County, IL. I'm looking to scan fire, ems, police, and state police as far as mt scanner will reach. Possibly also use it in Missouri occassionally, but mainly at home in Illinois. After reading articles on the RR website I'm thinking of taking my PRO 164 back and getting a digital scanner. Due to Starcom21 and APCO abilities of other scanners. I want a trunking digital scanner and I'm considering the PRO 106. I would like input from others as to what you use in Illinois and what you think about the PRO-106 or other alternatives. Does the PRO 106 need software upgrades due to rebanding? Also any other tips to getting started in the scanner hobby in Illinois would be appreciated. I'm a newbie but I learn fast. I have started manually programming the PRO 164 but am having trouble with trunking. Not really understanding how to find TGID numbers and other values found on RR and then put them in the scanner. All this effort is lost if I get a another scanner! Also what do you guys think about programming software , any suggestions? Thanks in advance for any info!!!
