I checked the data base but I cannot find police department frequencies, only fire and EMT.
Will this thing still be worth using to listen in on local Suffolk County, NY volunteer FD's? I'm thinking it should because all the frequencies listed here are 46.xxx ranges. Is there a better antenna that might boost my signal area? This thing is older than the hills I know but I've pretty much decided I don't want to spend a ton of $$$ on a high end digital scanner considering Nassau already went encrypted which means Suffolk isn't far behind.
