I am wanting to gift a relative a scanner, he lives in Reno and wants to listen to PD/FD. I see in DB where it is an EDACS system and in "analog" voice mode. Just wondering if any EDACS capable scanner will be sufficient. I am in AZ and plan on programming it for him...thanks.

An EDACS capable scanner should suffice for now. The county is in the process of migrating to a P25 Phase 2 system in the near future (as is the state) and it's quite likely that many talkgroups will be encrypted.

The Washoe County Phase 2 system is up and running, I believe it's patched with the EDACS system, but don't quote me on that. Right now all Phase 2 talk groups are in the clear.
