Technically, there's no reason why it wouldn't as long as the model you get is compatible with your FD system. Know that the Motorola RSS software to program the radio is not inexpensive nor user friendly.

You would also need to inhibit transmit on the FD channels, as well as any other channels where you are not licensed or authorized to transmit.

However, in reality, if all you want to do is listen, you would probably be better off purchasing a true scanner. The benefits include lower cost, lighter weight, more versatility, easier to program.
