Hi icomR20, welcome to RadioReference :)
A blocked scanner will omit the range that was designated for cellular roughly 824- 849 MHz and 869 to 894 MHz. Public safety and business will occupy the 850-868 range.
Some geographical areas have been rebanded from the 860's back to the 850's as well.

824- 849 MHz and 869 to 894 MHz have nothing on it!!! If you are from USA take blocked or ublocked - no difference!
