Hello! I've been listening to emergency services, businesses, schools, etc. for a while now. I seem to keep running into the same problem. Often times if I have a scanner or radio and I'm listening to a business, grocery store, school the employees or staff members seem to get very upset about it. My first experience with this situation was at Ocean Breeze Waterpark in Virginia Beach. I heard them talking about someone with a radio listening to their channels on my radio one day and shortly after I had several employees tell me the channels are "private" and I'm not allowed to listen to them or have a radio. Some even tried to tell me it's illegal. I was then talked to by a lifeguard who told me to wait for his supervisor. More recently at the school I attend in VB I was told by an assistant principal that I'm not allowed to listen to the channel and it's against the rules, yet there are no rules that say I can't. He claimed I was "hacking into their radios." I was wondering if anyone had any similar experiences with this, I would love to hear them.
