The basic answer is "More is better"
Because everyone loves a nice rack.I see these photos of people with racks of scanners... why so many scanners?
Because as I type this response, I am listening to my county which is on digital, and another county which is on analog. Yes, my digital does analog, but it can't simultaniously let me listen to both. That, and the fact, I can have more than one scannerIt sounds like if you get a digital trunking scanner can't you perty much run the gambit?
No scanner can do two, or, more systems at the same time. All digital scanners do analog as well. What I meant in my response, is, that I can not listen to both systems at the same time on the same scanner. It is one at a time only If you want to hear two, or, more systems at one time, multiple scanners are neccessary. This is generally the reason people have more than one scanner.So not all will do digital and analog at the same time? do some?
I'm still looking for my first scanner.
