As long as the radios where you work are analog, you should be able to hear it on the 245. Are you able to hear NOAA weather radio on the scanner? Are you sure that it even works?what I don't understand is that I can not pick up my work on it. 154.600 that is analog and I can pick up my work on my other scanner. sorry forgot to add that in my in above comment
I was thinking the same thing. Would not think anything over a couple hundred yards would be heard reliably.154.600 is Murs. If your work is using actual Murs type certified radios then you'd be doing good to reach a half mile away from inside a building. Walmart uses Murs a lot and some of them do good to talk outside to the parking lot.
Yeah. That's why I said "should". Itinerant frequencies on low power such as what Walmart or Wendy's would run would not be the strongest signals out there.Perhaps, but I wouldn't count on it. Most duckies on handhelds are worse than a wet noodle at VHF frequencies. More likely on a good 2 meter or dual band duckie. Maybe even on an Austin Condor
