Clear User Data on 3600 / 436

To be clear, you can get RR database updates with the included scanner software for free. It costs nothing extra for that feature.

Re: WHAAAAAT?

If you’re going to run 50 watts or more, yes. I can count on the fingers of one hand the number of times I had to go higher than 5 watts, and I’d still have a couple of fingers left over. At 5 or even 10 watts, probably no damage to your scanners. At 50 watts? Sure, that could be a problem. Probably best to turn the scanner off if you’re going to do that.

PS . Many yrs ago  had a small  Scanner  business Communications Research  if you are old you may of seen My adds in Monitoring  Times and Pop Com ..I would  have scanners on display and an Officer or  Ham would come in  and transmit  to hear  themselves  and blew the front end. also  if they  walked  across the carpet  static build up would occur and I had  metal telescopic ants on them they would also get zapped and blow the front end.. I cured both problems by putting to diodes   back to back on the  ant input it takes  the static and strong RF  to ground .. Not easy to do with  the new scanners .. Also if  you have a scanner  with a  metal  ant  inside the house and walk across  the carpet  to adjust or touch the ant the static discharge  can take out the front End ,,always   ground  your hand to something ..

 

I watched a  guy selling a scanner at a Hamfest  AKA  Flea Market  I guy  ask to see it and programmed  his Two Way transmit Freq ..keyed it up and said testing 123  of course the Scanner  heard him But he just blew the front end , He bought it took it home and it would not  receive very well He got on his ham radio  and bad mouthed  the person he bought the scanner from WOW

Re: Can anyone about laws on scanner

What is not specified is whether indirect reception 'counts'.

This is what has not been tested in court.

Cellphones are capable of receiving streaming which seems to meet the criteria of the law. Streaming of those signals can be received on cellphones. Cellphones can be carried by an individual.

It's not something I would want to defend in court since it could go either way.

The KEY here is "capable of receiving signals". It does not specify that the receiving has to be direct or that it must be "capable of TUNING to those signals".

That's not necessarily true. This is Indiana's definition encoded in the

purposes and that:

(1) can be installed, maintained, or operated in a vehicle;  or

(2) can be operated while it is being carried by an individual.

The term does not include a radio designed for use only in a dwelling.

As you can see, it has to receive signals transmitted on police
frequencies, which a phone does not. To my knowledge, there hasn't been
any court cases determining one way or the other.

Many, many years ago when I worked in television (engineering but
helped with news) in Indiana, one morning on the way into work I
heard
of an accident ahead on my normal route. I started going a different
route to bypass the accident. Then I heard a call for jumper cables
because they had a car stalled at the accident scene making another
problem. The only officer who had jumper cables was on the other end
of the county. So I showed up. I got out of my car and said I had
jumper cables. The officer said great, but how did you know we needed
jumper cables? I said I heard it on my scanner. He looked at my Ohio
license plate (I lived in Ohio) and he said you know it is illegal to
have a scanner in your car in Indiana? I said yes, I know that. I
told
him which station I worked for and said I would be glad to show
you my
media pass and scanner permit or we can just jump the car and get it
out of the way. He said lets just jump the car and get it out of the
way. Good choice, so that was what we did. I always figured that he
probably thought since I knew what I needed to have and was
willing to
show them that is wasn't worth the time to look.

Subject: Re: [Uniden] Can anyone about laws on scanner

Over the years I have had several interesting interactions with law enforcement regarding use of scanners.

While returning back to Tucson Arizona from Nogales Arizona/Mexico late one evening I proceed thru the permanent border patrol check point that has been set up 10 miles or so North of the Mexico border.  Back then US Customs and US Border Patrol were fully in the clear and they were an awesome listen.  I always had a scanner locked on their channels 24/7.  I drove into the checkpoint and had forgotten to turn the scanners down like I usually do in that situation. Right as the agent leaned down to ask the usual `US Citizen' question, both his handheld and my scanner both went off, and my scanner was louder than his handheld. He reacted with a chuckle and asked why I was listening to them and laughed when I told him that I enjoyed the adventures they got into.

I was driving a little hatchback and had the back seat folded down and the back was full of computer merchandise that I had picked up earlier in the day, so he asked if he could check under the blankets covering the inside of the back of he hatchback.  Turned out he owned a Commodore computer and the back of the car was full of Commodore goodies.  I ended up with a good customer out of the interaction as he lived fairly close in Tucson to where the store I managed was located.

In the late 90's into about 2008 I was a stringer news videographer on the weekends here in the Phoenix Arizona area and I used to chase news for all the television stations here in the area.  One evening I was sitting a few blocks away from an active barricaded subject call waiting for a good time (since the subject was actively shooting at the time) to move up to the perimeter for video.  One of the outer perimeter patrol units drove by my antenna laden pickup and I heard him call the sergeant and took him off to another channel and I herd him describe my truck and ask the sergeant if he felt that he should check me out further.  The sergeant told him not to worry about me since he knew I was media and all I was waiting for was for them to shoot somebody.   A few minutes later I saw the sergeant drive by my location, he waved and flashed his overhead lights as he passed my truck and we both got a good laugh later on at the scene.  The subject had decided to turn himself in without further incident and it turned into a non story as far as the stations cared.

Another evening I was sitting back from a possible house fire when a couple of officers walked by my vehicle.  A rookie officer was quite taken by the radio stack (I think I was running about 8 radios that night along with a laptop in a pedestal mount running video editing software).  He was about to get in my face when his training officer stepped in and said "Hi Roy, what's up?"  Rookie realized that it wasn't going to be a good idea to get into it about the radios and commented to the training officer that I had more equipment then they had.  The training officer had a simple response... "How do you think he gets to some scenes before we do?" :)

In the 12-13 years that I chased weekend news I really never had any negative encounters regarding radios, being there sometimes was another story better left alone sometimes. 

 I really enjoyed chasing news with a scanner and have made some lifelong friends with many in the law enforcement, fire services and media during my time chasing.  I know it had to make my neigbors a bit curious seeing a live truck sitting in my driveway with its mast up feeding video when they wanted video faster than I could drive it into a station. Good times.

Re: Can anyone about laws on scanner

Matthew Roberts
 

That's not necessarily true. This is Indiana's definition encoded in the law:

(c) As used in this section, “police radio” means a radio that is capable of sending or receiving signals transmitted on frequencies assigned by the Federal Communications Commission for police emergency purposes and that:

(1) can be installed, maintained, or operated in a vehicle;  or

(2) can be operated while it is being carried by an individual.

The term does not include a radio designed for use only in a dwelling.

As you can see, it has to receive signals transmitted on police frequencies, which a phone does not. To my knowledge, there hasn't been any court cases determining one way or the other.

So the people that provide scanner feeds via the Internet can be held responsible, too, if their feed was used by a criminal committing a crime to monitor where the police are while committing the crime?

Re: Can anyone about laws on scanner

Matthew Roberts
 

I was given a verbal warning for carrying it on my person while walking around the apartment complex in which I lived at the time. They told me I could go to the Sheriff's Office and get a permit, but the communications director refused to give me one because I wasn't a cop, firefighter, or ham operator, all of which are already exempt from the law anyway.

Has anyone actually been cited for or know anyone who has actually been cited for using a mobile scanner in a motor vehicle?  What were the circumstances?  This would seem to to be a secondary or tertiary type offense that is added to an underlying charge such as speeding, texting, open container etc. and the officer just happens to see the scanner in your vehicle.  That assumes that an officer is even aware of a statute that prohibits the use in a vehicle.  Just because you have a scanner in your vehicle doesn't necessarily mean you will be cited for it. 

I myself have had very infrequent interactions with law enforcement but when I have been pulled over, the presiding officer has never said anything about my scanner(s)OR my radar detector.  They are clearly visible and out in the open.   A couple of years ago we were stopped at a traffic checkpoint on I-40 in New Mexico and the only thing the officer said was that I had more antennas on my vehicle than he had on his!!!  True story.

Based on my observations and experiences, my guess is that most law enforcement don't care about scanners in vehicles as long as the scanner is not being used for an illegal purpose (ie. eavesdropping), to evade capture or aid in fleeing pursuit or using in in the commission of a felony.  Today's enforcement buzzwords are impaired driving, distracted driving and drug transport prevention.  And with the ability to scan on phone apps, the subject of mobile may be somewhat of a stale and moot issue. 

Also, if it were a huge issue, at the federal level the FCC could just stop issuing type certifications for mobile scanners as the intended use could be seen as one for installation in motor vehicles and thus could be a violation of a state statute.

Joe   , That is a great point and in Indiana  We try and not talk about it because  the Way the Indiana scanner law is written It state's   a device cable of  listening  to Police calls.. That’s right a Cell phone  would be considered a  device and if mobile or not on your property  or business  it would be illegal unless   exempt.. But please  be careful as scanner owners  we do not want the local PD  that has Scanner laws to try this in court and be right.
As everyone knows  Apps work ok But not like a real Scanner  that we can lock on a Freq .. Example listening a App you hear something bad in your hood and want to listen  the next thig you hear is the Dog  catcher chasing a dog in another  town , we are at the mercy of whatever  the provider   set his scanner  up for  ,,And I know we  have all read  because of Apps that is why lots of departments are  going Encrypted that is  another  thread  in itself ..

That's the part that has never been tested in courts - like having
streaming vs scanner laws. Does it have to be direct reception or can it
be indirect?

And to be clear, the person committing the crime would be charged with
using the scanner in the furtherance of a crime. The feed provider would
not be guilty since they didn't commit the crime. But they might be
charged under the disclosure prohibition of the Communications Act of
1934. That, too, has never been challenged in court. Is forwarding a
signal "disclosure"? Like how many licks it takes to get to the center
of a Tootsie Pop, we may never know.
