Important Notes about North Carolina:

The North Carolina Highway Patrol operates a conventional VHF low-band radio system which can be monitored on any police scanner. However, the state is building a new statewide radio system known as VIPER (Voice Interoperability Plan for Emergency Responders) that will eventually replace the low-band system. VIPER is a trunking system. The NCHP primarily operate in an analog mode that can be received on any trunking scanner, but other agencies operate in the digital mode. The system is also used by many city and county agencies in selected areas of the state.

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.
