Cecil County Options for Police, Fire and EMS Scanners.
The Maryland State Police operates primarily a VHF low-band conventional radio system which can be monitored on any scanner including basic low-end models. Other state agencies also operate conventional radio systems.
Cecil County operates an unusual EDACS trunking radio system which cannot be tracked on any scanner. There is a mix of analog and digital communications but the digital cannot be decoded. Some of the local city communications such as Elkton can be monitored on a conventional low-end scanner. Also some of the county trunking system can be heard with a conventional low-end scanner, but it will be difficult to do so. Therefore for Cecil County, Maryland we are recommending a basic scanner.
