Local Freq is an extremely easy to use location based front end to the Radio Reference website to find local police, fire, ambulance and business scanner frequencies. This is used to program your scanner with the area's latest frequencies and does not stream audio.

This app requires GPS and we recommend running this on an iPhone only. If you are running it on an iPod Touch you must have Location Services turned on for this app to function.

Get the iPhone application to have if you are a scanner enthusiast!
