I respect that you and your family work with it. But I think you are making statements that are WAY too broad about the entire state of New Hampshire. I'm not an expert on who is using digital, but I can very easily determine that not everyone, and a lot more than two, are not using digital for the fire service. And what you stated about frequencies and the laws pertaining to them are simply incorrect.

Why do you want a scanner anyway? Are you going to be one of those people that surfs the channels to find the latest action on the street and head out to it?

Actually Matt, DOT does restrict the use and availablity of scanners in semi's. It is a fine just to have one in your truck, on or not. Since semi's cross state lines, it isn't state DOT's that have those laws, it is a federal thing.

I wasn't talking about trucks. Those things are indeed their own little world (but it isn't because "trucks cross state lines". I cross state lines too. So does everyone else.) I was talking about this which is very incorrect:

ah....

The reason semi's are regulated by the Fed's for crossing state lines is because of interstate commerse. Fed's regulate that.

Yes, airplanes. Thats my story and im sticking to it. I think ill just pick up a unit off ebay for cheap and then hide it in my center console. If I get pulled over ill flip the switch and turn it off. If its out of sight they have no way of catching me with it.

Actually they can search if they have "probably cause". Which could mean anything. If you came even close to the center line, they can search your vehicle while making you do a field sobriety test.

I believe part of the mythology of having a scanner in your truck or on your possesion is that some statutes exist for prosecuting a person in possession of a police scanner/radio while committing a crime, particularly felonies. The idea being I believe, is that if you are robbing a store or bank and have a scanner you may be able to "listen in."
California has a criminal code for a parolee(convicted felon) in possession of a "police radio or scanner" for such offenses. I don't know if there is a statute that would apply to "law abiding citizens" or not for a police scanner.
Such a code exists for other items such as a "parolee in possession of bulletproof vest, or other items that the parolee may possess while committing a crime such as mace, dangerous weapon, etc."
Law enforcement often looks at it as "Why do you have a police scanner?" If you're minding your own business and wanna listen in its probably ok. If you are committing a crime-you're in trouble.

I've worked in the California Department of Corrections-Parole

Just my 2 coppers- pun intended...

:

Thats why most people have/steal them in our area, there deadbeat ****** who try...key word try, to run but they can pinpoint where your at with the new Motorola's...Or you got the people who try to figure out where the PD is at so they can attempt to do something stupid, then they hear there plate being run on the radio for being a moron

You can get the frequencys, you can go buy a digital/analog/cb, you can Try to listen in, but chances are you arnt going to be able to understand a damn word were saying on the radio....

Why would you want to listen to plains?


Ill be 10-79 in Route to my 99...

Codes are not universal. The only "code" that means the same thing 99% of the time is 10-4. All the other ones are made up by the agency using them and differ from agency to agency. Most of the time, it isn't very hard to figure out what they all mean after you listen to them for a week.

And if they are a current NIMS compliant agency, they don't use 10-codes anymore. 10-codes kept agencies from communicating to each other.
