Hello, Im new here on these forums. I have looked around in the forums and couldnt find what i was looking for. I couldnt use the search button because i am using my cell. I am a college student who is taking Aux. Police training for the NYPD. My instructors have told my class to go to the precincts and listen to the radio to develope an "ear for the radio". Now instead of doing that i thought i would just buy a portable/handheld radio. I wanted to know the cheapest portable that can be programmed with NYPD frequencies. And if its hard to program a portable for a newbie. Remember I am a college student and money has to be spent responsibly, so im not looking to pass the 100 dollar mark. Any info is appreciated. Thanks.
