I used to use a radioshack scanner about 7-8 years ago to listen to the police in my area. When they switched to digital my scanner didn't work anymore and I gave up trying to figure it out. I don't know much about scanners, but I'm willing to learn to be able to listen in again. I went and looked at a Uniden Bearcat BC895XLT today i found on craigslist. I am wanting to know a few things: Will this scanner work for my area? (I am in Sylvania Township in Lucas County, Ohio.) If they went digital, does their frequency change? (They used to be at 453.575 when I was last able to listen) Any other helpful informtion?
