    Well the frequencies depend on where you live and where your local Fire and EMS and Police departments operate. For example, most of Virginia is switching over to Digital Trunking, so normal scanners won't work here, but depending on where you live, regular VHF/UHF scanners might still work. If you can tell me what state/city/county/town you live in, I could probably get you a list of frequencies to program into your scanner. But please don't give me your street address Ex: 5555 Somewhere Lane.

The following link may help you locate all of the things you are interested in listening to, and explains how to search for them. Once you have the frequency (the string of number, seperated by a dot), you have have to figure out how to "save" those frequencies into your particular brand of scanner. Some scanners allow you (once saved) to replace the numbers with a name, which is much friendlier, but also is specific to your brand of scanner (as to how to accomplish it). Here's the link;

What are the frequencies for nz emergency services

Congrats on your purchase... you should be able to get fire, ambulance, police, local utiltity companies, local tv station radios, and a bunch more... the best way to get your frequencies is online. Alot are posted for different areas.

go to and type in your city, county, and "radio frequencies".
you should be able to get free lists of the different codes. Also turn you squelch down.. as soon as you hear static, turn it up just a bit to eliminate the static...that will be at the most sensitive setting without the static.

Have fun... you can also get a list of the "codes" that police officers use so you can tell what they are refering to. google for "police codes"

Have a blast and let me know if you need more help.
