There we go mixing issues.:evil: :roll: :evil:davidd2957 said:Just flew back to New York from San Francisco today. There was way more concern about a bottle of water instead of my scanner inside my carry-on. With a set of ear-buds,
I listened to my scanner when the Captain permitted the use of laptops in flight, no problems. Discretion is the key.
See link for more.The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) is considering proposals that may eventually allow you to use your own cell phone or wireless data device on airplanes after take off. Currently, cell phone users generally are permitted to use their phones before takeoff and after landing. FCC rules currently ban cell phone use after a plane has taken off because of potential interference to cellular phone networks on the ground. In addition, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has rules prohibiting in-flight cell phone use because of potential interference to navigation and aircraft systems.
This is the kind of broad statement that causes problems. Taken by itself, that statement is completely false.elk2370bruce said:... Airlines have the right, and most exercise that right, to prohibit scanners on their aircraft. ...
I think what was meant is that they have and exercise the right to not have you use scanners (or any receivers) on the plane.loumaag said:This is the kind of broad statement that causes problems. Taken by itself, that statement is completely false.
I don't think that is true, as it would require the prohibit almost all electronics, as they have not tested every configuration of laptop, DVD player, PDA, ect.loumaag said:FAA regulations require the airlines to prohibit the use of Personal Electronic Devices (PED's) on aircraft in flight unless they have been shown to not interfere with aircraft avionics.
It must have wiggle room, as I see a lot of wiggling going on, including one airline (forget which one) that has GPS in the allowed column.loumaag said:That is pretty simple to understand and leaves no room for "wiggle".
Like I said, you can't fix stupid!loumaag said:Why do people continue to try and read more into it than there is.
Well said!loumaag said:Your scanner can go on the aircraft (indeed no airline has a rule against you carrying it aboard the aircraft), you just can't turn it on in flight.
I have NEVER brought it up.toydriver_det said:For years now this has been N Jay's favorite subject. We take turns bringing it up. My next turn I think is August of 2011.
I did not say you brought it up. I said we take turns bringing it to make you happy and we ALL want to make you happy.N_Jay said:I have NEVER brought it up.
YES you do. Bang BangN_Jay said:I shoot it down!:twisted: :lol: :twisted:
Lou was right on. My message was more in jest than anything else. Please take it that way. I just thought the old scanner on the plane thread needed some humor but I just noticed that this was in the General Scanning forum and not the Tavern.N_Jay said:And thanks to Lou, I learned something new today.
No problem, I don't mind.toydriver_det said:I did not say you brought it up. I said we take turns bringing it to make you happy and we ALL want to make you happy.
YES you do. Bang Bang

You seem not to understand the situation. Even if the FAA, FCC, FBI, CIA, and EIEIO allowed it, the airlines could ban it. The planes are private property and as the owners the airlines can set the rules. If the government says you shall not, the airlines have no say. If the government says you may, the airlines do have a say. I don't foresee a situation where the government will say you shall allow scanners or cell phones.bwhite said:"Explain????"
Why let people use their cell phones if the carrier can collect big-buck per minute for AirPhone use. If testing to prove cell phones are OK to use on planes the AirPhones will join the Do-Do bird (extinct).
You forgot one.garys said:. . . Even if the FAA, FCC, FBI, CIA, and EIEIO allowed it, the airlines could ban it. . . .

And believe me, if I'd known what was to come, I'd have never began this thread in the first place.
Those have been around for a long time. I think I saw the plans in Popular Electronics when I was in Jr. High (or earlier).E-Man said:Check out:
