Hi xm202pest welcome to RadioReference :)

The trunk system you are showing us is VIPER and all but a few of the talkgroups are digital.

The Pro-2052 won't allow you to hear the talkgroups, they will come up as numbers with the digital squawk.
If VIPER monitoring is a must, it is time to get a digital scanner :(

Its not going to do you much good to program that scanner since you are in a digital area. I would suggest you search for a used PRO-96 on eBay, but you are still looking at about 250 dollars. That is if you want to hear what you specified in your first post.

Neither of those are digital scanners but are good analog scanners that would last you a while.

Look at this -> Digital Trunking Scanner Comparison Chart The ones in red are what your looking for. I found a PRO2096 on Craigslist new in the box for under $250 so look around, you can find something that works for you without a $450-$500 price tag. No, yours is not a brick, but, no you will not be able to hear your SO, PD, or FD but you have a lot to listen to -> FCC Licenses and Scanner Frequencies for Wake County, North Carolina (NC) in your area and Raleigh Fire and EMS have VHF simulcast on 154.3700 and 156.2250.

And BTW I'm B.U.F.503
