Transceivers do not make good scanners. First they are not designed to scan, just rotate through a couple of programmed channels, second they are not really capable of covering the spectrum we need.
There are digital scanners around, but budget around £400 or more for one. There are also TV dongles that cost around £15 to $20 that with some tweeking & with some free ware will happily listen to & decode most of the popular digi modes. But don't expect much traffic at weekends from most PMR sources & if it's handheld to handheld PMR then do not expect much range.
To listen to digi you need more than just frequencies you need groups & colours too. But with the right set up, you will be able to find that with some work.
As a whole frequencies are all that are exchanged here. In part because no one wants to post anything that could help someone pirate someone else's legally held frequency or cause problems for those we listen to.
