The Pro 162 should do fine.I was looking at the pro 162 1000 channel triple trunking handheld radio scanner from radio shack
also do you know any thing about Simplex and TMR?
sometimes the fire departments here use that
153.83 is the province-wide fire mutual aid frequency, but in my experience I rarely see it used. Then again I'm in Dartmouth, and Halifax Regional Fire doesn't use that frequency.and Mutual aid number that I had does not seem to be right 153.830 thats what I had I know if that rings any belles for not lol..
In addition to 153.83, there's also 866.8125, which is supposedly also a simplex channel used by volunteer fire departments. I've never heard anything on that before myself, but that doesn't mean anything. As mciupa said, you have to be pretty close to the scene to pick anything up on a simplex channel.also do you know any thing about cim plex and TMR? sometimes the fire departments from about here use that sometimes.
