an excellent scanner for your purpose, but the SC230 is an identical scanner without trunking. It runs around $150, and has many racing frequencies pre-loaded.looking for something i can bring to the races and get police fire ems ect .is the bc246t any good
Massachusetts State Police and Worcester Public Safety are trunked. SP are primarily analog(not digital), but it looks like there are plans to add some digital. A digital scanner costs around $500, but the BC246T will do fine for both these systems right now, as well as your local Auburn area. Depending on how much you want to provide for the future, you may want to inquire on the MA forum about SP plans to go digital, and any other system that might influence your choice.auburn ma.
