    Are EDAC frequencies digital too? I can monitor those.
    I enforce rules and regulations, not laws.

      Some are, some are not. If you can hear them, they are not digital. Ericsson/EDACS originally tried to defeat scanneristas with those annoying "GE jingle" tones or the five beeping tones after every transmission, but with the advent of "trunktracking" scanners, that was not a problem.

        I am a strong believer in the use of cell phones as a life line. There have many times when my radio ceased to work, or my radio's battery died or in a bad area where my radio could not catch a repeater tower. I use my phone often but not too much in view of the public unless it was an emergency.

        Be safe,

          Having an (unobtrusive) bluetooth headset is one way to prevent people from knowing that you're on the phone. In some circumstances, it is just as needed to be able to make a quiet phone call as it is to make a quiet radio call.
