WELCOME to the iRV2 bunch. Nice to have ya along.

I too don't know exactly what you refer to as a "Scanner frequency." Are you talking about a weather radio, or about a CB radio scanner, or something else?? Don't hesitate to jump back in since alot of us will try to help.

Anyway, again, WELCOME.

RE: CB Radio Scanner!

Sorry about that guys. I probably say a wrong words. Yes, it is CB Radio Scanner that we would like to buy. Sanner that easy to use but a good one and can be able to get in touch anyone where ever we are.

We're in Ocotillo wells, our cell phone don't have any signal at all and were kinda worried about it. It's nice to have something like the park ranger or police use maybe or better.

We do a lot of 4wheeling in the dessert so we need a better reception just in case we have an emergency. Any suggestions???

Hello Via and welcome to IRV2. There is a section further down the page on all the technology, that may be helpful to you too. Someone will help you. Have fun with your travels and be safe.

For emergencies such as you might encounter out of cell range I suggest the SPOT satellite messenger.

Among other uses, it allows you to send a distress message via satellite to an emergency response center that in turn communicates your location to a local response organization such as the police or fire. For roadside assistance there is another button that sends a message that will have that center send a message to your roadside assistance provider such as AAA or CoachNet.

The unit can be purchased at Best Buy and there is an annual service fee.

We also so use the feature that will send emails or text messages (preselected content) to 20 addresses with a "We're OK and here is where we are" type of message.

This is done via satellite, not cell, so if you have a clear view of the sky the message will get through. Anyone who regularly goes "off road" should have something like this.

I discovered that dialing 911 on my cellphone got through to emergency services even though I didn't have any regular cellphone signal.

I had three other people with me various cellphone carriers and they had no signal either.

If you get a CB don't be surprised if you can't talk to anyone on it where you are located.
Hardly anyone uses that technology anymore other than truckers on the freeway.

Don't know where I'm going, spose I'll get there anyway.
