    interested to see what is on the market. not too mobile I've used a laptop running SDRSHARP or HDSDR with a RTLSDR. also must use dsdplus to decode the digital voice unless they are just FM

    Radio Reference website is all about scanners and the hobby of scanning. Tons of info there.
    They have a "Getting Started" forum here;
    https://forums.radioreference.com/forums/new-user-getting-started-forum.137/
    Someone there can look up the info for what you want to listen to and suggest a suitable scanner.
    Very helpful forum for someone new to scanners!
    It's all still analog most anywhere around here other than the WA Sate Patrol so it's an easy choice here.

    UNIDEN Home patrol, BCD436HP. In the US you can download the channel listings into the Scanner. You can then set to search
    by area, service etc. In the UK we don't have these lists so have to make them ourselves. This scanner is great for various digital modes
    but will not receive anything encrypted of course. It doesn't do the D-Star and other Ham digital modes, I think AOR AR-DV1 Scanners do
    but are expensive.

    Hope this helps,
