Charleston County Options for Police, Fire and EMS Scanners.
The South Carolina Department of Public Safety, SC Highway Patrol, uses a mix of conventional analog VHF radio channels which can be monitored on any scanner but the primary radio system is what is known as the Palmetto 800 trunked radio. Therefore, the best South Carolina Highway Patrol scanner is a trunking police scanner model which can also monitor the low-band. Note that many state agencies use this radio system as do many counties and cities across South Carolina. A number of these county
and city agencies operate in the digital mode as do a few of the talkgroups on the state radio system. Therefore it would be a wise choice for statewide SC monitoring to use a digital scanner.
