\n\n\n \n\n \nI think it has to do with the MPA EDACS software needing to talk to the\nEDACS system controller, whereas the Bearcat simply decodes what is\ntransmitted and tracks the conversations that way.

\nMark, am I wrong?   You're the Master EDACS Engineer, not me!

This actually brings up an\ninteresting question, how can a $200 scanner track an EDACS system,\nwithout being authorized, but an actual GE Radio cannot, or can it?\nAnyone know for sure how to do it? I would like this type of setup to\nmonitor the Port Authority Police near me.

The Bearcats are fully portable, see\nthe link http://www.scanners-r-us.com/index.php?orbiz0712043=374ffa918e2b76111737fe1c4fc4dc46&action=full_details&id=195&orbiz0712043=374ffa918e2b76111737fe1c4fc4dc46

\nYou may have to have the radio programmed to "come up" on the system in\norder to listen, and that means having their permission, essentially.\nMark would know if that is the situation.  The Bearcat scanner would\nwork in any case, just would not be portable like an MPA.

\nNot sure what you need to get an MPA to do what you want.
