The Service Bank Search allows you to search for weather, ham, marine, aircraft, or police (fire/emergency) transmissions without knowing the specific frequencies used in your area. The scanner is programmed with all the frequencies allocated to these services. "A Guide to the Action Bands" under Scanner Basics has detailed information on the frequencies allocated to each service band.
