Welcome to RR. This site has a database for nearly every county. Your's is here:
Newport County, You will see a low band freq for fire, and a VHF for police in your town.

which, unfortunately, the old 235 will not be able to handle. You can find a list of the current - and older- models on our wiki homepage, in the popular topics area. To get there, simply float your mouse over the blue toolbar under the Scanner Master ad to Wiki and select Wiki homepage Then look down and to the right about 2/3 of the way to the Popular Topics box 73 Mike

Little Compton PD & FD

I hate to say this but Little Compton PD & FD are on the RISCON 800mhz digital network which pretty much encompasses all of RI. The only PD's still using VHF/UHF are Portsmouth and Tiverton. Newport, Portsmouth and Little Compton FD have RISCON 800mhz digital radios but I don't believe they use them for fireground ops. While I'm not sure about Lil Comp, Newport, Middletown, Portsmouth and Tiverton FD's still use VHF/UHF.

Since there probably isn't much PD traffic in your area & FD is busy with mutual aid to Tiverton, I've added Little Compton PD & FD to the Newport County Feed. When you get a digital capable scanner I'll send you the files I have for the area to help with the scanner programing.
