Digital Hand-Held Scanner is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for local police and fire - easy to program My town recently went digital so I had to buy a new scanner. I know very little about programming scanners, so I was nervous after reading some reviews that it was going to be challenging. It was not. Within 10 minutes I had manually programmed in my local police and fire. Quick tip- the word 'object' just means the frequency you are entering.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to program. The scanner was fairly easy to program without having to pay for memberships on assorted websites that will help program the scanner. My wife and I enjoy listening to our local police/fire department as we are both retired and not in great health.
