Description This old police radio hasn't been used in years, but still picks up a bit of signal. Should help keep you up to date on gang activity in the city.
Class Gadgets

Effects

Sometime, after combat, it gives you the status of a random PVP location:

You hear some static from your police scanner as you finish up the fight. You take a few moments to tune in and catch the latest.

Full Control:
Sounds like <area> <is/are> in the iron grip of <gang>.

Control:
Sounds like <area> <is/are> strongly held by <gang>.

Some Control:
Sounds like <area> <is/are> loosely held by <gang>.

No Control:
Sounds like <area> isn't controlled by any gang at the moment. The whole area is up in the air.

The gang can be your own or a rival gang.

Hypothetically, the Long Ranged scanner gives updates when you're not in that area, and the Updated scanner gives messages more often?
