I am currently living in the central florida area but havent been able to find any useful frequencies for radio?
I was mostly looking for anything that would just let me know whats going on in the general area as well as something I could turn to when an actual emergency happens. I am very new to general radio stuff so speak slowly : )

Also, general radio question thread.

I have no use for outgoing communication, so I don't use a two way radio.

I use this a RadioShack Pro-95, it picks up all major bands, is extremely reliable, can be used with rechargable or regular batteries, has Dual Trunking, and was only about 20 bucks. the antenna can be swapped out, has an auto scan and search feature.

I've seen this on radio fora, but I've also seen a lot of comments on it. Best is to start with this and gather/verify info for your area.

121.5 is the emergency frequency for mayday, it's used mainly for
Aircrafts. 123.45 is the CTAF, common traffic advisory frecuency. Also used in aviation.
