• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

Anybody ever get a CC hit from a Cordless Phone.


Went to the mall today and I got a close call hit on 902.2 (or .6 don't remember exactly)
It took me a while to figure out that it was coming from a cordless phone, the cashier was using (in the store we were in).

I was able to hear both sides of the conversation.
The phone looked like it was an old AT+T phone, it also said Lucent Technologies on it.
I thought that was pretty weird.


After I found out I was listening to her conversation, I locked out that Frequency in my scanner.

As long as you're close and it's analog - you should have no difficulty grabbing it...

Yup, just have your spouse talk on the cordless and set your CC on. I was in my truck in the driveway searching through the 150 MgHz and caught on to a convo in my house on a cordless. Then taking the 246 in the house I found it was on a 900 Mghz freq. Why the bleed over?

Cordless Phones for the most part are cheaply designed. Alot of the designs emit RF in many parts of the radio spectrum they were not designed to transmit on.

I get CC hits on the 900mhz and 46/49mhz cordless phones all of the time when ever Im in range of one. Of course it'll have to be a cordless phone that doesn't use digital spread spectrum. Those basic low-end model phones don't so you'll easily pick them up with any scanner.
