Hey everyone, hope you're having a great night.

I dug out my old radio scanner, and I know the police have gone ahead and crypted their digital network, but I would still like to listen to marine, fire, or ambo's, but all the New Zealand sites greet me with 7 digit codes. My Uniden UBC72XLT only has the option to add a 6 digit frequency.

What do I do?

Ignore the last 0 most the time. It will however let you enter 7 in when they lie within the 12.5khz step of the band

IE 130.125 or 160.6275 will enter in but will show with a smaller 75

Ah I see what you mean, awesome.

Is there any frequencies you could recommend that are active on chatter? I live in East Auckland. Pretty high on the hills.
