Hi Everyone I am old to the game of communication and new to the game of Police Scanners. I am looking for help to get the right police scanner to listen in and broadcast from Emeryville Police Department in California. I am not sure if a analog scanner will do the job or if I need a Digital scanner. As I don't want to make a mistake and I don't want to over pay I was hoping someone could help educate me on what to buy, will it work... etc etc etc...

Thank You

You need a digital scanner that is capable of P25 Phase I trunking. Anything else will be useless for listening to this trunked system. Happy scanning, good luck. :)

Actually if you want to get any life out of it, you need a scanner capable of P25 *Phase II*. EBRCS was supposed to be phase II already, but COVID-19 delayed it a bit. It will happen, though. The last target I heard was the end of October.

A better forum for further discussion might be: San Francisco Bay Area Discussion
