Important Notes about Wisconsin:

Most Wisconsin cities and counties use analog VHF channels that can be monitored with a basic police scanner. Some agencies use digital channels on VHF so a digital police scanner would be needed here. In the Milwaukee area there are several types of systems in use, including Motorola (Waukesha and Milwaukee Counties) and EDACS (Watertown and Ozaukeee County) analog trunked systems that can be monitored on a trunktracking police scanner.

Important Notes about Jefferson County:

A basic police scanner will work for most county and local Police, Fire and Ambulance radio communications in Jefferson County, Wisconsin, including Fort Atkinson and the City of Jefferson. The City of Watertown uses an EDACS trunking system for Police, Fire and Local services.

To monitor the Wisconsin State Patrol and other state agencies a basic police scanner can be used as they operate on VHF radio networks.

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.
