Not saying where you are located, the question is, are you in an area where there is two way radio systems? We are not mind readers. We do require more information such as what systems you are close to and want to monitor. Are you trying to monitor CB, Ham, Fire, EMS, Police, businesses, Aircraft, etc.. Please help us help you!

Welcome to RR! Did you by chance program any frequencies in? The term "scanner" can be confusing to new people. There is a way to scan and listen to near by frequencies but you will have much better luck programming frequencies in to listen to specific chatter.
