Scanners / Frequencies

If you don't have a scanner you are missing out on a lot at the races. Unfortunately, there are no longer any reliable, free frequency lists available online. I recommend that you subscribe to one of the big providers for regular updates if you attend a lot of races. If you only attend one or two races each year then buy them at the track during race weekend.
