Important Notes about Minnesota:

The state of Minnesota has been slowly rolling out a statewide 800-MHz digital APCO-25 trunked system that can be used by local and state public safety agencies. Systems are currently installed in the Twin Cities, the St. Cloud and Rochester areas. While many areas remain on VHF and UHF analog systems, a digital trunking scanner is needed to monitor the state's ARMER radio system.

The best choice for a police and fire scanner for Minnesota -- especially in the Twin Cities, St. Cloud and Rochester areas -- would be a digital trunking scanner.

The distance a scanner is able to receive varies based on the type of scanner, the location of the radio, and many other factors. A portable scanner inside a home may only receive 10 miles or so. A base station scanner with a back-of the-set antenna slightly more. A scanner connected to an outdoor antenna often will receive double or triple these ranges. If you have a portable scanner inside a car, the metal roof of the car will attenuate the signal you're trying to receive. A mobile scanner antenna mounted outside of the car with a magnetic or other type of mount will significantly increase the distance you can hear and the clarity of most stations.

The distance a scanner will receive depends on many factors including your elevation; the frequency, elevation, transmitter power, and tower height of the transmitting station; the terrain and buildings in your area; whether cellular, paging and other transmitters in your area; whether the system you're monitoring is a wide-area network, and more. Every area and every situation differs. Go to scannermaster.com for antennas, pre-amplifiers and other hardware that will help you increase the range you are able to receive.
