Default Why is UK so restrictive?

I just read the UK monitoring law and was wondering why your country is so restrictive on monitoring? Almost every country has streaming of aircraft but the only thing UK has is ham radio. I would expect to see these type of regulations in Saudi Arabia not Europe.

have you not noticed that the united states is heading in the same direction with encryption ? no athorative figure or organization wants any transparency between them and the so called "meddelling civilians ". they want to do what they want to do, when they want to do it, how they want to do it, where they want to do it who they want to do it to, for as long as they want to do it too.

What you mean with?
Receiving 1090mhz Data is in the most country not directly illegal but share the Data with other and the Gov tolerate it.

Why does the FCC put a 155 mile rule on CB transmissions? Why do U.S. scanners have certain portions blocked? Sounds like something out of the Soviet Union.

From its inception, the Citizen's Radio Service has always been intended to be a short range personal and business service. Power output limits (4 watts AM; 12 watts SSB) on an hf band is intended to ensure that in normal conditions.

The distance used to be 150 miles; at some point the FCC wanted to go metric; 250 kilometers is equivalent to 155 miles. Close enough for government work.

Not sure what your trying to compare? Limits on CB transmission range in US vs total monitoring ban in UK.

I was referring to streaming ATC audio not ADSB. The only issue we have here in the US is if the department is encrypted then we are out of luck monitoring but if it is not encrypted we are allowed to listen with very few exceptions. I am just asking what is their reason for being so restrictive in the UK?

Both are ridiculous, antiquated rules. Both are also routinely ignored by their respective citizens.

UK mentality comes from the Second World War (walls have ears), and was then made worse by the Cold War. The powers that be haven't noticed we have moved on.
