I am looking into to buying a police scanner. The areas I would be using it in (Knox, Blount, and Sevier counties in Tennessee) seem to use the P25 Phase II system. I understand that the scanner would have to be compatible with this system. While researching online I saw that the phase 2 system could be encrypted? I also read that if it was encrypted you were not able to listen, even with a phase 2 scanner.

My question is whether or not the BCD325P2 would work for the counties listed above. Also if there is a better fit for another scanner, all suggestions are welcome.

Thanks,
Andrew

Before you buy a radio, you should ask this in the Tennessee forums and have someone confirm there is stuff to listen too..
