Posted about using my Blackberry for a scanner,but upon reading up on this found it won't do all I'm looking for.So what handheld scanner would be a good "starter"? From what I've read I'm guessing a trunked 800 is something of the type I'm looking for,not sure. Want to be able to get my town and surrouding ones too on the scanner. Batavia,IL would be main town with Geneva,N.Aurora,Aurora,ST.Charles,plus county of Kane on the scanner. Set it up to have police on one and fire on another band/block. TY.
