Tonight on 911 Lone Star they used a WS1065 scanner for a base radio. Had some kind of generic mic next to it. The scanner had a two meter frequency on the display of something like 144.000, but was shown kind of quick.
With a linear.It was probably "mega peaked and tuned"

I recall the movie Swordfish, where someone used a bunch of ethernet cables to connect a stack of network gear. I analyzed that too much and it ruined the movie. Well, there were lots of scenes in that movie that ruined it, but that was the icing on the cake.
Actually those radios (the ones the terrorists brought with them, one of which McClain nabbed) were, if I recall correctly, Kenwood portables. If they're UHF it's possible they could talk to LAPD, but the odds of the terrorists just happening to use the same frequency/PL combination are pretty high. And how is it the terrorists were yakking back and forth for around an hour before McClain called from the roof and all of a sudden the PD can hear them? What really killed me there was the limo driver being able to listen in, too.Perhaps the worst of them all was the original "Die Hard." CB radio directly to police handheld as I recall.
