    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. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

I live in broward county, city of Hollywood. Would like to get Hollywood, Pembroke Pines, Hallandale and Ft Lauderdale. Possibly plantation. Any idea what scanner I would need?

Will this work?

Uniden: BC346XT Handheld Scanner - TheFireStore
Broward County Public Services Trunking System, Broward County, Florida - Scanner Frequencies is the system you want. The BC346XT is only analog it will work with the system but if you like to hear Hollywood FD/PD is digital *which the BC346XT will NOT work since there are a few Digital Talkgroups. In Jan 2014 Uniden BCD436HP/BCD536HP. There are other scanners will work with the system in your area.

Here is a few scanners are listed under the wiki
