I just happened to check a list of my submissions and found two things I don't quite understand?? First, a couple of recent submissions for Lebanon county,PA are listed as "owned by scan-pa" What does that mean?? Does someone have to "buy" the information I submitted? The other question is: Why is a submission for Guerrero,Mexico that I submitted in August of 2007 still "open"? During my travels to Mexico with my "illegal" scanner,I have risked jail,and have had a scanner confiscated once to get some of these hard to obtain frequencies. Just to relate an incident which occured last august, shortly before I made the Mexican submissions, I was camped out in the desert near San Luis Potosi when during the middle of the night I was awoke by the SLP Policia Estatal shining lights on me,pointing hand guns and automatic rifles at me, screaming at me to get out of my tent NOW!! Just barely awake I yelled at them to cool it and let me put my pants on, to which they responded GET OUT NOW and I could hear the weapons clicking! Anyways, they found a R/s scanner I had(but with the antenna taken off) as they ripped though my belongings dumping everything unto the desert floor. Amazingly the oficial just looked at it briefly and then dropped it to the ground. I guess he thought it was some kind of cell phone! But he did get excited about a GRUNDIG AM/FM radio I had and was not satisfied until I turned it on. What a close call!
