I ve still got my 500 channel scanner wired up on the radio desk but hardly ever turn it on. Other than aircraft around 118-127 Mhz there is very little left on FM these days.

Shame really as i had a Realistic handheld scanner back in the 80's and you could pick up all sorts of local com. Guess its all gone digital now. :-(

There are still people using old-fashioned cordless telephones on frequencies around 31.085 - 31.210 but it "may be" illegal to listen to them :-/

There are, it is illegal to listen, and it is even more illegal to fire up your widebanded HF/VHF rig and tell them you are from MI5 and monitoring them!

I've still got an Alinco DJ-X3 handheld am/fm scanner which comes out every now and then. It used to be our main source of entertainment, back in the day, when it was cr*p on the telly (which, to be honest, was most nights). We're under the approach to Bristol Airport so I pick up overhead aircraft clear as a bell, and the tower too (not so clear). I've recently bought a scanner antenna to see if it would improve things but, so far, it hasn't seemed to make any difference from the Watson Whip antenna I usually use. Sad

@Victor Alpha 10. Yes it’s a shame it’s all gone digital but more of a shame that a lot of things are encrypted, but understand why some had to...like the police, I still loved listening to my local India 99 helicopter and police 😬
