I just heard a bunch of sirens toward our little town and sit here wondering what is going on. It occurred to me that it would be a good idea to have a police scanner to be able to listen in and see what's up. I probably should have had one long before now. I started doing a little research on Amazon but I know squat about digital vs. analog and would have no clue on how to program it. Does anyone have any suggestions for a novice in the arena of radios. I just want something basic, fairly inexpensive, and easy to use. Thanks!
