- Conneaut, Ohio
My wife and I are heading out to the store and we're strongly considering purchasing a new Uniden BCD396XT with hopes of picking up the Conneaut Police Department's traffic after recently upgrading to the MARCS digital system. Can anybody confirm that we'll be able to pick them up? Does anyone know if they're using an encryption method that will keep the new scanner from picking them up? The fire department (which I'm a member of) is still using narrow-banded analog VHF and we already have a scanner and my FD radio, so basically, if we can't pick up the police with the new digital scanner, there's no real need to spend the $400 on a new scanner.
