Hey all I'm new to Digital Scanners, I lived in Albuquerque NM and they were using Provoice so no way I could listen to them at all. I have lived in the valley now for almost 2 years and have decided to go for the digital. I live in N Phoenix, Tatum and JoMax area should I be able to pick up all of Phoenix transmissions up here since they have repeaters? I'm going to get my UNIDEN BCD396T tomorrow (Is this a good scanner for Phoenix?) One concern I have is that I was told that all of Phoenix PD and Maricopa County are using encryption so I wont really hear anything anyways. IS THIS TRUE? If so then I might not buy the radio.
