Hi , my name is John , I am 54 and I live in St. Louis county , Missouri. I'am thinking about getting a Uniden Home Patrol scanner to listen to Police and Fire. I would like to listen to both St Louis County and St Louis City. I haven't had a scanner in over 30 + years so its like learning all over again. Would like to know what others think of this radio and if its what I need to hear the most from the area. Thanks , John Everett.
