I'm looking into getting me a scanner but am unsure of which one would be best for someone just starting out. I looked online for my area and they say that my State Troopers are going to VIPER communications but everything else looks like its just basic if i'm reading it correctly. So I'm guessing I need to go with one that has the trunking ability? I live in Greensboro, NC and i'm aiming to get a handheld. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
