I just got my first SDR usb device and trying to use it as a police scanner to listen to local broadcast.
Any info or tips for picking up signal in Marion, AR

SDRs have very low sensitivity, that's my experience anyway. Unless it is a station extremely close to you, you will be unlikely to hear it. You're much better off getting a DMR-capable police scanner.
