    Default A couple questions on a scanner.... Maybe cb

    I am looking to get a scanner but I want to do with out a visible antenna. so im guessing im stuck with the suction cup to the window ones correct? And if its digital will I not be able to pic it up with a "basic" scanner... I may go with a cb too or instead im still doing research

    "recently, the Metro Boston simulcast system, and the Upper-Mid Cape systems have been upgraded by the FCC for digital modulation. The new FCC Callsign is: WPYX480."

    so this is what they use in my area
    482.51250 485.51250 KYL844 RM 146.2 PL Police Dispatch Tactical 1 FM

    and this

    System Name: Massachusetts State Police Statewide
    Location: Statewide, MA
    County: Statewide
    System Type: Motorola Type II SmartZone
    System Voice: Analog and APCO-25 Common Air Interface
    Sysid: 0D14
    CT: 97.30

    You would get better performance with a magnetic mounted antenna like Antenna Specialists Mon 51. Those little antennas that mount onto the window are no different than using a handheld antenna there alot more smaller too but that's why you loose all performance and signals.
