I know nothing about scanners,can you tell me how they work and is this a good choice for the money?

Asked by: thepossyman
Scanners are tuned to certain frequencies you might be looking for. Most people choose Police and Fire frequencies just to see what's up with their cops and fire departments. Basically, anything that generates an electronic signal is disturbing the atmsopshere at the frequency it is broadcast on. Scanners merely look for those disturbances at given frequencies. Common examples are AM/FM stations have LICENSES to BROADCAST at certain FREQUENCIES. (That's why you TUNE the radio. To get to the frequency of the STATIONS assigned FREQUENCY. When your scanner detects a SIGNAL of sufficient strength, it can trigger the AMPLIFIER circuits in the scanner and internally reduces the signal (which will always be at frequencies WAAAAY beyond what human ears can detect) to a range of frequencies you can hear by using audio circuits. So, to efficiently use a scanner, unless "you're just reading the news" and let it search on its own, you can find the freqeuncies you are interested by using internet sources like https://www.radioreference.com/apps/db/.

800 MHz Bearcat Base and Mobile Scanner with Narrowband Compatibility is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 13.

Dialed right into frequency monitored. Booklet very explanatory even for those with no technical radio knowledge (frequencies, bandwidth, squelch, etc) Only possible downside observation is connection for antenna. Engineers should fix this as it can pop off during movement too easily and possible cause secondary damage to unit if owner tries to move unit in operation and gets "surprised" by antenna falling off and drops whole base unit. It's minor but it is a thing.

Installed in existing holes in Jeep center console. Hardwired to 12Vdc, window antenna hooked up and YouTube videos made understanding quick programming easier. Everything looks and works great!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Decent, Basic Scanner Home install with the AC adapter was simple & easy right out of the box. Hardest part was programming frequencies. Watched some online videos that helped immensely with programming. Recommend watching them. Google "programming the BC355N Scanner." Watching the videos makes the programming process much easier, as trying to follow the manual may get frustrating. Once the process is understood, programming is simple, but tedious. Installed my BC355N in my truck with connection to an external antenna. This works best for optimum reception. The glass mount flexible antenna is mediocre at best. Recommend an external speaker for best audio. Internal speaker is tinny and limited volume. Only feature missing is a priority function. Would have rated excellent if it had priority. "Close Call" feature is similar but not as effective if you want to monitor a particular frequency. 3 months along and have had no problems with the product. All in all a good value for the money.
