Take a look here:
FM means analog right?Take a look here:
It looks like there are a couple P25 trunking systems in use for public safety in the area, but the database still has a LOT of analog conventional channels listed. Perhaps someone who lives in Cleveland will chime in and let you know how busy they are.
If you want to listen to everything that's monitorable (i.e. not encrypted) you're going to need a digital trunking scanner, preferably one that can handle simulcast.
Your Bearcat BC-800XLT was a decent base scanner around 1986 or so but it is NOT narrow banding complaint so that becomes a problem with entering frequencies now. I looked at City Of Cleveland and some you can listen to but others, this scanner won't enter the exact frequency and it is not trunking/digital either.
Will do. ThanksYour Bearcat BC-800XLT was a decent base scanner around 1986 or so but it is NOT narrow banding complaint so that becomes a problem with entering frequencies now.

Take a look at the following base scanners: BCD-996P2(least expensive digital P.25/BCD-536HP which has zip code programing and is easy to set up. It also show you what you are listening too commonly referred to alpha tagging. The top of the line feature a color screen, true IQ circuitry for simulcasting which is the SDS-200. YouTube all of these units.
Hope this helped you out sir.
drdialtone, I never heard of the UBC-800XLT. It looks like the newer models now like BC-15X/BCD-996P2. I'm thinking the model we had here in the USA in 1986-1987. That was Uniden's first unlocked 800Mhz scanner.
Some parts of Cleveland area's. If you don't want to spend money on a digital scanner, then buy a Bearcat BCT-15X. They were around $125.00 on Amazon (3) months ago but have gone up to 184.77 but Bearcat Warehouse is $159.90(had (2) left today but they only ship free on digital scanners but no sales tax to Ohio, only Maryland residents. Call them at 877-568-7226 tomorrow and ask for Melissa/Paul.What did you see that's narrowband?
