Hello guys new to scanning. My father is a Sgt with the Detroit police and my mother wants a new scanner. We had one years and years ago but nothing for the last 15yrs. I need something reasonably priced and absoltely idiot proof easy to use. I now detroit uses the motorola xts5000 radios. Its easy to listen to that when he's home but other than that she wants a scanner. We have a radioshack pro89 scanner what a POS. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
