Question Need help with trying to pick up RISCON

Hello everyone I am fairly new to the whole scanner scene the last time I had a scanner was the early 90's and I have noticed things have changed. One being ALOT of local police stations in RI are using this RISCON thing and I can not for the life of me figure out how to get the frequencies or any other way to listen to it. Is RISCON the same as a trunked system where scanners cant listen in ????? I am currently using a Uniden BC125AT handheld. Please help me out thank you everyone!

RISCON is 800 MHz. which the 125 cannot receive.

Default if i needed a new digital scanner

i would pick up a uniden 325P2.
because i find it easier to program after using a 396t and a 396xt.

Smile RISCOM

If money is no object maybe try a Unication G4/5 . Everyone say they are great! You will still need to program the pager.
