Just getting back into scanning after a lot of years. I just ordered my first digital scanner (BCD396T) and hoping it will be here Tuesday and give me and my family a lot of interesting listening. If anyone has any suggestions what to listen to please help. I enjoy listening to Fire, EMS & Police I know Edison PD is encrypted and Woodbridge PD will soon be. I have read a lot of posts from all and it has helped us decide on what to buy. My next step is an attic antenna if anyone has any insight on which one, please let me know. Thanks for all your help.

You can start monitoring Edison FD / EMS. It seems like something is always going on over there and always fun to listen to....

Check out Woodbridge and Metuchen as well if you want to start somewhere....

South Plainfield is an alright listen to have as one of those background channels that when something comes up, it's exciting!
