About Radio Scanners

The Scanners Page Radio scanners are also known as police scanners. Scanners "scan" radio frequencies and receive transmissions from broadcasts, events (like NASCAR races), conversations, etc. Many people use scanners to listen in to police and fire department broadcasts. The main types of scanners are base, mobile, and portable. Truckers on the road use either mobile or portable.
