I haven't had a police scanner in years. I live in Suffolk County New York and the Suffolk Police use frequencies that are in the 850MHZ range. I actually thought they were still in the VHF range (150 MHZ) and now that I am aware of the current frequency range, I want to make sure that I buy a scanner that will receive the police transmissions. I was looking at a Bearcat-Uniden model number BC355N. This scanner covers (25-54 MHz) (108-174 MHz) (225-380 MHz) (406-512 MHz) (806-956 MHz) (excluding cellular telephone bands) but I have read that if the municipalities are using a digital system, some scanners might not receive the transmissions. Can anyone suggest a scanner that is in the $100 to $150 price range?
