    Default Introduction Hello

    I heard somewhere that you can buy a "scanner" and just listen in rather than make any transmissions. I hope this is true. Hopefully, I can just buy a cheap scanner and listen. Any tips on how I can do this or is it illegal?

    You can listen to what you want, provided you do not pass on any information to a third party (I think that's how it works).

    Have a look for an RTL dongle (on ebay) they go for less than 10 and are quite capable.
    There's loads of free software available too.

    A suitable wideband antenna, like a discone, mounted high up, with low-loss coaxial cable will give pretty good results for very little outlay...
