I live in the New Orleans area and I am looking for police, fire and any other interesting frequencies to monitor. I am trying to decide on purchasing a Uniden BCD996XT or the Home Patrol-1, if you have any suggestions they will be much appreciated. If you have either scanner please let me know how you like them. Thank you.

The HP1 is easier to program (select the desired system from the builtin database and go) while the 996XT is a bit more flexible, but much harder to program. The choice is mostly how much you want to put into fine tuning the settings. They're both good scanners.

If you simply want to listen with minimal hassle get the HP1. If you want to fiddle with every little setting to make things work exactly how you want (possibly setting something that'll make it work much worse as well) get the 996XT.
