Hey everyone, i'm new here. I found this site searching for high quality scanners that are able to pick up police channels. I tried using radio ref to add channels to an older scanner for the Philadelphia area, but i don't hear anything. My friend who is more knowledgable told me they are "trunked" and that i would need to spend a little more money to buy a more modern, better quality scanner that has that capablity. I just don't want to spend the money and not be able to listen in because of some type of encryption. I was looking at the Uniden SDS200 or BCT15X Trunk Tracker. If it has trunk tracker, will it beable to break through and listen in? Thanks in advance?
