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 😬

Everning All.

CT3533 here (Airfixpilot)

I was trawling through radio You Tube videos a few weeks back, when I came across one called, Radio Scanning - Is There Anything Left To Listen To??. It was a interesting video were it went through ALL the bands, and were to find activity. When the emergency services went over to Tetra, except for airband, most scanner users thought there was nothing to listen to. This is far from the truth, if you know were to look.

My hobby in aviation means I listen to both Military and Civil aircraft, over the UK and north sea. I also listen to PMR radio and other stuff. It is best NOT to tell anyone what you listen to, due its a bit of a frowned upon hobby. There is forums for this hobby, including Transmission 1.

The equipment I use is Two Icoms (R5 & R6) and a Uniden UBC125 XLT. All have airband Watson 901 antennas, and Nagoya 771 for PMR ect. Books to read is the scanning directory, (although out of date, It will give you a good steer) and theUnited kingdom Airband frequency Guide. (UKAFG 2020).

I do use a spreadsheet for all My frequencies, so I can look up in a instant, which frequency belongs to who/what.

Any questions welcome.

Regards CT3533
