Good afternoon, and Merry Christmas to all,

My wife got me a Uniden BC125AT for Christmas. After some stumbling around with a half read through the instructions I was able to find the local police department I was looking for. This was a great surprise seeing that they were cut off of Radio Reference.com and Radio Scanner app for Android and iPhone.

I would like to get the other police and fire departments, as well as Eastern MA State police. It was pretty awesome listening to MA State Police Air Wing as they were closing in on the Marathon Bomber in Watertown, and seeing the helicopter in the sky on channel 5.

I was thinking that I could also get the local DPW by using the close call scan feature on this scanner.

Any help and suggestions would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Eric

Hi esalach, welcome to RR and Merry Christmas to you also.

To help answer your questions, we need more info (as puzzleriddle suggests) such as where you're located in Eastern MA and exactly what systems you want to monitor.

The MSP operate on a 800 MHz Trunking system which is a frequency range that the 125AT doesn't cover. I think the 125 AT will only monitor conventional radio systems, so you'll have to get into a more advanced scanner to listen to MSP.

County information

Hello all,

So I am in Essex County, I am specifically looking for Lawrence, Fire (stumbled upon P.D.) Lawrence DPW, Methuen Police and Fire, but apparently the Mass State Police operates at a frequency 800MHz which my scanner cannot handle
