It has been 30 years since I bought a new scanner. Our local police changed from analog to digital (I think) and I could not receive them anymore. So I bought new Whistler 1040 thinking I could receive the police now but for some reason I can't. The scanner is working but on search I don't get anything more than I got (and still get) with my analog scanner. Before I return this unit I just wanted to ask if maybe the police here in Lenoir, N.C. 28645 have changed to a signal I just can't get period. I used the frequency as found here on this site and it has not changed. Seems like long ago I heard the name "Viper" when they changed but not sure about that. Thanks in advance for helping or trying to help.
