My 83 year old Mother really misses listening to the police scanner chatter when she lived in her small NY town. Fortunately I came across your site and found out that in the Michigan city she lives in now she will need one that works with (system type) EDACS standard and (system voice) ProVoice and Analog. I'd like to surprise her with an inexpensive basic no frills scanner. Will analog work? Or do I need something more? I read the article called Interpreting Database Trunking Entries and I am still not sure what I am looking for. I searched Amazon scanners and more confused than before. I'll do the programming and keep it simple for her. Thanks. Jo.
