    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet.

I want to be able to access a 365 DPL tone with FMN mode. What would be the cheapest scanner capable of picking this up? I really want to get into scanning but don't want to spend a ton of money. Thanks for the help!

If you just need to receive the frequency and there are no other users (on other DPL/PL) on that frequency, any scanner will work. If you need to be able to enter the 365 DPL (in order to block other users on that frequency), then the BC125AT is the least expensive option.
