Windham County Options for Police, Fire and EMS Scanners.
The State Police use almost exclusively the UHF band, with the local police and fire departments using a combination of low, VHF and UHF frequencies. The state has begun to use common or shared "interoperability" frequencies on the VHF, UHF, 700mhz and 800mhz frequencies. Interoperability allows public safety agencies across the state to communicate with each other and many states countrywide has begun this shift as well.
With the exception of a few, low end scanners, any police scanner will monitor the State Police and all city/town public safety agencies. Some of the low end scanners do not have the ability to monitor the the 700 & 800mhz range.
