• 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:

As long as your not using it to avoid the police in sodomizing a cat, your fine.

Even though that might be the law, it seems the police are not completely aware that scanners are legal. I've had one cop tell me it is illegal and another tell me they are not a problem. Just be careful....

Perfectly Legal Unless You are Caught Burglarizing A Local Hooters For Souveniers & Have A Scanner In Your Posession.

Seriously Now.

No Restrictions.

But If You Get Pulled Over By A LEO, He Just Might Have You Shut It off Until He Is Done With You.

Any Cop In Ct Who Says They are Illegal In A Car Is Just Trying To Scare Ya A little.

Base scanners in the house are ok in NY, not mobile. The law was recently changed a bit to be even more vauge. If you have a ham license and NOT scanning public safety freq's mobile, your good to go.

Unless your being really stupid or a cop is having a really bad day, most will not bug you on a MV stop. This would not be the time to invoke a roadside 1st-99th amendment debate.

In any case, USE FRIGGEN COMMON SENSE!
