Answer: 
A digital scanner is required for reception of digital. All you would hear from digital with an analog scanner is a lot of noisy static.

Answer: 
Not sure what your old scanner is. It must be capable of p25 digital phase I or maybe phase II. The Whistler WS1065 will do P25 digital phase I. It will not do phase II. Most public service will go phase I at first then phase II.

Answer: 
The scanner sold at Home Depot is not capable of receiving digital transmissions. If your local PD switches to digital I recommend you get a Uniden HomePatrol 2 (not HP 1...still not digital). I use my HP 2 for excellent digital tracking and reception. The GPS accessory is especially good for traveling. It changes the channels to whatever is receivable in the area.

It has a standard BNC connector, and I don't see any antennas listed on the Home Depot site. Google "BNC scanner antenna" and you will find many.

Rated 3.5 out of 5 by 2 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by WS-1065 Scanner Very good scanner. Use mainly for 800 Trunking. I would buy again. August 26, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Complicated Product This was a good buy from Home depot. This unit is very complicated and hard to program. I also had to subscribe to a service to load the frequencies in batches. I must have spent 8 hours working with this unit. I thought it was me but a person I know with a similar product worked on his for 15 hours to get the way he wanted. The unit is good quality. I guess it was just too hard for ME to program!!! I returned. June 21, 2016
