    I have got a scanner with is a must when your a plane spotter. I got mine from Tandy quite a few years ago but it still does its job. Some of them will pick up military which is quite interesting but the best was when mobile phones were analogue and you could listen in on calls, great laugh

    I think the cops in the states stream their comms on internet so you can listen in if that sort of thing interests you.

    All gone or moving to the new digital system (TETRA), the new system incidentally runs at almost the same frequency as older car alarm/cl keyfobs, these older systems had inadequate noise filtering so when the Staffs police put a transmitter in Stafford town centre (around 2005) my old 306 wouldn't lock or unlock via the keyfob at all, even with the transmitter right next the receiver on the car.
