ATS! I can't believe I hadn't thought of it before, but this is probably a fantastic resource for finding out what I may be doing wrong.
I bought a Uniden 800 MHz 300-channel Base Mobile Scanner (Bearcat 355N) off of Amazon just last month, and I've been able to tune into the
construction crew doing roadwork by my house (some hilarious conversations I've picked up on that one, lol)... and a few times I've tuned into local
Police but it is as if the local police frequencies keep changing or I can't get a good lock on any.
Does anybody here have any tips for me?
I also have no idea what the "SQ" dial/knob is for on this thing.
I bought it because my grandfather was in the Coast Guard and we always used to listen to the scanner in the background. Well I hope to be able to
find and save some local frequencies, but so far I'm spending most of my time "scanning" and listening to weird dial-up tones.
I know you can look up frequencies for the area where you live - any resources for this would also be greatly appreciated.
Do I have the wrong scanner? Am I doing something wrong? I'd love any input from my ATS friends. Even if that means "you bought the wrong kind of
scanner bud, you're not going to find anything with that thing". At least I will get some answers
