Wanted to reach out to the forum as a "NEWBUE" to the scanner world. I am looking to invest in a quality scanner for my area to monitor; police, fire, EMS, etc.. I've been trying to research the best I can but am not sure what I need and don't want to spend a lot of money if unneeded. What I want is a handheld portable scanner with rechargeable batteries that I can plug into the wall and leave on at night in my bedroom. Thanks in advance for your help, I greatly appreciate it.
