I live in Orangeburg SC, and I am still using an old BC860XLT. I am in need of suggestions for a new scanner that will pick up just about everything. I am mainly interested in listening to the Orangeburg Department of public safety, which is the city police. I also would like to listen to Orangeburg County Sheriff Department. The Highway Patrol in Orangeburg County and surrounding areas. I will mainly listen to police, fire and ems and air traffice if possible. If I am asking too much please let me know....I have looked all over for frequencies, call signals and codes, but to no avail. Hoping someone can point me in the right direction. Not sure wether its digital or analog. Don't understand the trunking. I have read and read, but I don't think it would mean a hill of beans if I don't have the right scanner to test. Any help would be greatly appreciated. If any of you experts lived in this area, what would be the first scanner you would suggest?
