I have an old realistic pro 2024 which I cant get to pick up anything and I am looking at getting a Uniden BCD996T , I don't know if this will monitor Polk County fire or not. Would you tell me what I need to get if that uniden will not work? Thanks for the help. Tom

Polk, Hardee, and Highlands Counties are on a regional P25 Phase 1 system. So you would need to look for scanners that are capable of monitoring digital trunking systems particularly P25 trunking systems. However, the city of Lakeland looks as if it’s on a P25 Phase 2 system, so if it were me I would buy one of the scanners that can also monitor P25 Phase 2. Those scanners will be the ones that just recently came out and they’re a little pricey. However, you will be ready if or when the system that Polk County’s on is upgraded.
