Another lavatory lawyer attempt at beating the legal realities that have been detailed, ad nauseum, above and in eight earlier threads.N_Jay said: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).
Unfortunetly, the rule does not say "No receivers with local oscillators", it says "no receivers", so while these fix the TECHNICAL issue, they do nothing for the LEGAL issue.
No, Just pointing out the error in the previous post?:roll:elk2370bruce said:Another lavatory lawyer attempt at beating the legal realities that have been detailed, ad nauseum, above and in eight earlier threads.
Because you said;E-Man said:Now why would you say that?
Guess, I did not notice your "?" the first time.E-Man said:Ramsey claims you can use it on an airplane?
"Passive design, can be used onboard aircraft, no local oscillator, generates and creates no interference whatsoever!!"
If you work in avionics, then you know that "discretion" does not make it legal.ticoman71 said:For the past 16 years and as of two weeks ago, the last time I was in a plane, I have never had any problems carrying and listening to my radios (scanners, Ham and even GPS unit) in the main cabin for both US and International flights. I have been asked in the past by security to turn them on, but other than that, no problems at all. I think the key is just simple discretion. What people need to see is the headphone cables, not the whole radio, otherwise, some lunatic is going to confuse you with God knows what and cause a scene....
I used to work in Avionics and the myth of PED's causing interference is simply that...a myth. I have never seen any concrete evidence of it with the exception of one time that I was testing a 2 meter handheld (5 watts out) inside a plane. Needless to say that this was done while working on the plane in the hangar, not at a gate on an active flight.....
Just my 2 pesos....
Another clever way to be discrete while doing the illegal.mike_s104 said:I haven't read the whole topic but I had an idea, you can use you laptop at certain times right? what about keeping a fully charged scanner in your carry on or backpack. place it under your seat. turn on the scanner and connect it to the laptop. use headphones to listen and the laptop to control it. no one will probably question your laptop use while the scanner is in the bag unseen.
Good thing for you that pesos are worth so little. According to Smithsonian Air & Space magazine, several issues back, the FAA has several documented reports of onboard PEDs interferring with aircraft navigation equipment. That is what brought the whole thing about in the first place. This isn't somebody's wild idea at the FAA, "Hey, let's ban all PEDs onboard commercial aircraft, just for the heck of it!", there were several incidents which led to the FAA decision.ticoman71 said:I used to work in Avionics and the myth of PED's causing interference is simply that...a myth.
