• 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:

I will be in the Philly area all next week on business. My question is. Will I have any issues with airport security when it comes to my scanner. I plan on having it in my "carry on" bag.

Hello,
I'm not aware of anywhere domestically you would have a problem.
20 some cities for me so far this year and not a 2nd glance even once.

I flew through Philly recently and the scanner was not an issue, nor has it been at any of the many US airports I have passed through. The only time it got a glance was years ago when a screener thought the rubber ducky looked like some type of a drill on the x-ray. I suspect that nowadays to the screener the scanner is just one of many electronic devices like cellphones, PDA's, Blackberrys, pagers, digital cameras, etc they have to sift through while looking for potental weapons.

Also, I have listened to my scanner many times at the gate in Philly without any problems.

If your in Moorestown I would put in the NJSP Troop A there can be some good listening on that and you will be in close proximity to the turnpike station.
