Re: Communications Act of 1934
Yah, I keep meaning to tell the police that it's quite legal to have a police speed radar scanner, as long as I don't slow down.
I'm not seeing how they are getting out of the "acting on information" violation of radio snooping.
I have heard that police used to occasionally have stings for that, like report a UFO down in a field over their frequencies and arrest everyone who showed up.
Here, the law is a scanner is only illegal to own if you use it for illegal activities. It is not against the law just to own it. Even had the police chief agree with me at a crime watch meeting last year about this.
