I've never had trouble taking it in. But on the advice of a friend and some recent personal experience, I've been more 'discreet' in taking it in. Check out this thread:landonjensen said:Has anyone had trouble taking thier scanner into Disneyland? Do they question it or anything?
Just tell them you are keeping in touch with your retarded cousin named "Al Queda"...they will accept that with open armslandonjensen said:and, if they ask, what could i say the scanner was for?
Because you can get a lot of useful and entertaining information over the radio. Weather can cancel some of the big night time shows. Hearing the cancellation over the radio will allow you to beat a hasty retreat before the rest of the crowd knows. I have actually heard them 'pin down' the crowds with 'may be cancelled' messages when they knew for sure the show was being cancelled. They just wanted to get their crowd control people in place.Go-24 said:For that matter, why not just leave the scanners at home? Jeeeesh talk about a needle in the arm.
Can you explain that part in bold?traumacop said:Tell them it is for listening to the weather, news broadcast, local ham repeater, FRS they rent illegally and the local fire/ems.
