Question cordless phones

I know you can pick up the old ones and i am now except i can only hear my moms side of the convo and that frequency is 915.30625 and the pl tone is changing continually. towards the end i heard my aunt but very faintly.Can you guys help me out?The phone is an old AT&T 2.4ghz with a number on the bottom right corner of 1460, if that helps any.

You may have to listen in the 2.4 GHz range to hear both parties. It could be possible you are only hearing the handset, therefore only hearing 1 side of the comms.

Default hmmmmmmm

That would a bit of trouble being i have a PRO-96 which only goes up to 1.3ghz unfortunately. Is there a base frequency for that?I faintly heard the other side but if i turned it up the crackling on my moms side would become rather pestering and didnt want to put up with that.

Why would you want to monitor cordless phones?

rafale , you are hearing the handset transmitting to the base unit in the 900 band.

Forget about phones , you've got a bloody Pro 96 , you can listen to Houston County Digital stuff !
Don't tell me that isn't interesting to listen to .

Default yeah yeah yeah

I know i got better things to listen to but it would be better if i could run an external, hopefully some sort of discone, and mount it on top of my house(it would work real good because the part we'd mount it on is metal roof and the waves would be bouncing off the roof and to the antennae) but i cant afford one. I can pick up my counties transmissions ok on the rubber duckie but not as good as the antennae on my truck, and i aint going to sit in my truck to listen to my scanner.

Isn't it, ya know, sort of illegal to monitor any phone conversations without a court order or warrant?!?

Not gonna tell ya how to live your life, but I'd be wary of admitting to criminal activity on a public message board.

Some older ones can be monitored.
Sometimes both sides of the convos too.

It's kind of illegal though of course. That might or might not stop you.
Most decent newer cordless phones wont be able to be monitored.

There's a 14 year old girl up the street that babbles endlessly on a cordless phone... I think that was fun to listen to when I first "found" it, but that lasted for about 5 mins. Talk about nonsensical conversation that makes you want to claw the sheetrock off the wall... sheesh!

I'll take the local PD action anytime.

For the sake of arguement, yes, it IS illegal to listen to cordless phones. They, baby monitors, pagers, remote broadcast, and a bunch of other stuff is like cell phones - are "protected" by ECPA 86.


So if you're listening to this stuff, don't get on here and blab about it.

I know that now i was only listening to it at my house therefore only my phones could be picked up. I didnt blab it was a simple question. If its ILLEGAL then why do they post base/headset frequencies on the WWW? oh yeah i forgot porn is illegal too but its still on there. Complain bout me all you want i dont give a rats a** about it anymore i just cant stand this criticism like im really even gonna try to use the info i hear from someone like blackmail im 18 and im dumb, enough said.

Obviously not since I can pick them up. If they use the radio waves, then I have the right to try to intercept them. I don't give a rat's @ss if some peice of paper says it's illegal. Especially from a body that doesn't follow their own laws with the likes of Echelon and Carnivore.

Listening to corldless phones is fun, Especially when the person you're listening to has call waiting and I have *67, That makes things...........VERY INTERESTING.

I don't listen to phone calls but at the same time, I spend the money to buy a radiotelephone that can't be picked up on a scanner. If you want privacy then pay for it. If I'm stupid enough to talk OTA on a cheap phone so others could listen, then that's my problem and no piece of paper saying it's illegal will protect me, nor are people here who are moralist preaching that it's illegal to listen to going to proctect me as well. I protect myself by buying equipment that can't be heard OTA, and if somehow somebody comes up with a way to listen, then good for them.

Do you mean Harris County? I cannot find any digital info on the database for Houston County, although Walker County is a neighbor, and P25 is active there. So, I guess it would be boring to try to listen to any digital traffic in Crockett.
