Where do you live... if you will take a few weeks you can study for and successfully acquire your Tech Ham ticket which, in most instances will allow you to have your scanner with you....lakesh_online said:Hi
Could anybody pls tell me what are the laws are regulations regarding use of Scanners such as Radio shack Pro-97 in residential and mobile use.
Do someone need any license before using this type of scanner.
I agree, that it is best to start a thread in your home state's forum, and peruse the link that mcema699 gave you. I really don't think I would approach the police about it. Many states have various exemptions based on being a licensed ham, part of the media, a state or local government employee, etc. The police often times don't know all the caveats in the law and may just as easily tell you NO across the board because it's easier for them.mcema699 said:Yes, the best place is your state forum because they know how the police enforce your state law locally. Here is a link that should help though. I copied from a q/a in the Indiana Forum.
