Which doesn't exist. If you're intent on continuing to scan 900MHz, you'll have to just keep hitting the lockout button. The wiki article is just a list of some known frequencies used by some cordless phones. There is no difinitive list of cordless phone frequencies.To those that continue to suggest I simply lock out that section of the band, thank you but I was hoping for/expecting something a little more creative...
Like what? Government regulation that requires scanner manufacturers to lock out those frequencies for you?To those that continue to suggest I simply lock out that section of the band, thank you but I was hoping for/expecting something a little more creative...
A loophole in ECPA'86 makes it legal to monitor radio transmissions causing you interference to your radio reception, and can listen legally to the extent necessary to identify such interference. After you've made positive ID of what you're listening to, you must then STOP listening if it's an ECPA'86 prohibited transmission. This is CRAZY and unenforceable!This is a hilarious thread. Give me a list of frequencies so I can lock them out in case there might be a phone conversation on one - I wouldn't want to be caught listening to something illegal. GOD FORBID! Who is going to BUST you for listening should you happen upon one accidentally? your Guardian Angel?
Sounds like you are a normal scanner enthusiast who listens to radio transmissions not intended for you, and enjoy listening in on cordless telephone conversations. You want to find them, rather than stumbling across them, so you look to RR, a great source for such information. But you want to avoid all the "you can't do that: it's illegal" bs, so you make a point of going on record that you want to "delete" the frequencies. Just search between 902 and 928 MHz, with particular attention to 916 -928 MHz. and enjoy! Don't tell anyone what you hear, and NOBODY cares.
I'm not a fan of government intervention.Like what? Government regulation that requires scanner manufacturers to lock out those frequencies for you?
I know I may get an infraction for saying this, but why is it so hard for you to take responsibility for your own scanning behavior? Or maybe I am just not clear on what kind of "creative" solution you would like to see implemented so that you are not tempted to eavesdrop on private conversations? If you don't make those decisions yourself and rely on someone else to decide what you can and can not listen to, it will probably not turn out to be something you will like!
Good point too, so he actually has absolutely nothing to worry about from a legal perspective.The OP is in Ontario, Canada, where the ECPA has no effect, anyway. Unless Canada passed a 'no cordless monitoring law', it's perfectly legal for him to listen, anyway.
even if it was bcd 996xlt...lolYou know the FCC and DOC can tell when you are listening to an illegal frequency and fine you at will. They do it all the time, so you BETTER not be listening to anything that's not approved. I've thrown out every scanner I have that will receive these frequencies. I suggest you do the same. It's just not worth it!.....
Going back to my Corvette analogy, this would be like saying that I should install a device that will not allow my car to exceed the speed limit because I am not personally responsible enough to operate it in within the confines of the law. It is not illegal to own a car that is capable of exceeding the speed limit. It is only when you operate it in an illegal manner that you could get into trouble.I'm trying to "take responsibility" for my behavior by getting a list to lock out.
It seems you "were not clear" on much of anything I have written and I will strive for more clarity in the future.
