For the first time ever, I was questioned [day 3 of Cruise] by Security about the Radio in my room. Seems my Scanner Antenna [suction cup mount to ceiling] was observed by my Stateroom attendent and security was told.

Explained it was a Scanner [RX only] and had a nice discussion with the Desk Manager and Security Chief about the Amateur Radio topic and explained that the typical portable VHF/UHF will not interfere with the ship channels, yet the FRS/GMRS that they don't question would.

Now to contact RCCL and push the issue.
