Sorry I'm a complete noob. What's p25 conventional?
Conventional P25 is in short, a non-trunked(if you don't know what trunking is, read about it here: Trunked radio system - Wikipedia) P25(APCO-25 or Project 25, you can read more about P25 here: Project 25 - Wikipedia), which is a digital mode commonly used among law enforcement.


Would a Home Patrol 1 scanner work?
Do you want to just scan Augusta? Or do you also want to scan Maine State Police?

Alright, haha.

The home patrol 1 will work with the Augusta channels.

But, with the looks of the price of them. I would look at something newer, such as the Uniden-BCD996P2.
Keep in mind the home patrol was discontinued in 2010.

Regards,
Kyle

If you just want Augusta do you just want Fire and Police? No public works or anything
