Ider Options for Police, Fire and EMS Scanners.
The Alabama Department of Public Safety and Highway Patrol operate primarily a VHF high-band conventional radio system which can be monitored on any scanner including basic low-end models. However, in the Montgomery area the Highway Patrol operates in part on the regional EDACS trunking radio system which will require a trunking scanner to monitor. Most other Alabama state agency communications are on conventional radio systems as well.
De Kalb County, Alabama, uses conventional analog police and fire radio communications systems. Any police scanner will work in De Kalb County, from low-end to high-end models
