Try contacting your local law enforcement agency, they will usually be happy enough to send you a list for your county - however there are frequency numbers that are private and not ment to be 'scanned' by us regular folks. Your local newpaper or TV station may have the list on the website. All the other frequency numbers i know of i got out of my book - which btw was well worth the $10 becausee it gave me EVERY agency broadcasting : fire, sheriff, state police troops A-F, courthouse, etc. You can try letting your scanner do the work and have it scan for frequencies and store those that you find and dump the ones you dont like later, but if your going to do it that way let your scanner scan for a week or so - some frequencies dont get used very much. If your town/city has a website the local frequencies should also be listed there. Good Luck
I have many years experience repairing Canon scanners so here is my suggestion for you.
Im not quite sure what you mean by frequency's? If you mean the dipswitch settings that is a different matter. You dont mention what model or make of scanner you have. The dipswitch settings are set at a factory default setting so unless you really have to I would leave them as they are. If you could give me a little more information I would be glad to help you out.
http://www.police-scanner.info/ is one site that offers frequencies. the easiest way though is to go to Radio Shack and purchase the scanner frequency book for your state. another alternative is to go to your book store and get the book. If you do a google search for scanner frequencies, sometimes you can get them for free. You might also contact friends who have scanners in your area and get the frequencies from them. The FCC lists all the scanner frequencies, as the people who use them, police, fire, ambulance and also coast guard, are all licensed and this is public info. so google the fcc and check there. I have several scanners and this is how I got my freqs.
The following website contains a database of scanner frequencies for various cities throughout the United States. You can enter the frequencies available in your region to be able to tune into traffic on particular channels.
