Don’t know what kind of RS scanner you have however I am guessing that it is not a digital one and that is what you will need in order to monitor Fairfax County or just about any other jurisdiction in Northern VA. Digital Scanners are expensive but if you are interested, I would look for a used one on eBay. If you have any questions about any one particular model, post it before you buy.Just wondering..new here..When you run into a Project 25 and/or 16...how exactly is the frequency to be inputted into the scanner? I actually have a crappy scanner from Radio Shack...I am from Winchester and seem to be only getting one of the frequencies to work...
The PRO-135 is analog-only, and cannot handle trunked radio systems. This will work for Frederick County and City of Winchester, as both are listed as conventional frequencies, and are likely analog. Clarke and Shenandoah counties are similar to Frederick too.Appreciate the feedback...this is actually a portable from Radio Shack; though a few years old..It is actually Cat.No.20-135. I have tried quite a few frequencies that seem to work for others; yet I cannot seem to get this scanner to work.. I can get Winchester Police Department...that seems to work great; yet I cannot get Frederick Sheriff or VSP....Guess I need to invest in a better scanner...Merry Christmas..should have added one to my list this year!!
Is their some kind of Maintenance or problems going on with Fairfax County Fire & Rescue channels this weekend ? I've tried to monitor since yesterday morning and I haven't heard one single thing ? What is going on or is their some kind of problem ?
It is most likely because of P25 Simulcast Distortion; covered in many different threads on here.Why does it seem like Dispatch is always jumbled and mumbled dispatches and its hardly ever clear anymore ?
