The important thing about simulcast is location. You might have garbled reception but your next door neighbor might have no problem at all. Sometimes, even a few feet might make a difference. I'd opt for the SDS100 or 200 so you can future-proof, so to speak, your scanning. In addition, if you travel with the scanner, I'll practically guarantee the SDS scanners will give you improved reception.

Life lesson NEVER QUIT 1 job without having a new job in place also if you want a better life make yourself a employee that deserves a $15 dollor an hour or better.

As others said in your last thread, check out Unication as well. There are several used g5's on the classifieds here as well as from reputable sellers on ebay. A g4 will work for you as well. They handle simulcast very well. Cheaper than a scanner but not as capable. But for what you've been asking for, I think it'll suit your needs.

It's also commonly used when a person only wants to monitor a few specific talkgroups on a system and needs something reliable on simulcast. It was built for emergency service workers but some hobbyist find it useful if they don't want to monitor a dozens of things. STORE- G4/G5 Voice Pager | Unication USA

I think you are way over your head and have a lot to learn.
I have to ask are you under the age of 18?
XTS are radios that you have to have a licensee to transmit on plus a radio system to use.
It would help us if you would tell us about yourself then we may could help you more.
