i use mine when taking a walk or walking my dogs also. i always take one with me in the car so i can switch it on if something goes down. dont always listen to it in the car, but i take it with. i do take it out of the car when not in the car though. the batteries and radio can get really HOT on warm days

Some entities use various frequencies they pulled out of their @$$ with no licence.

Before my area went digital I had scanners everywhere, kitchen, living room, basement, and my truck.
When the switch was made to digital I went about 3 months before my wife said to me "you should go get a new scanner".
I listen as often as I can but you all know how busy life can be at times.

Ouch! I’m lucky. My lady friend actually likes it. We were in the car the other day, talking, and I went to turn it down and she said don’t because she wanted to hear more.

Even now. The only place to find them are places where they are required to be posted.
