  1. does anybpdy else have a popo scanner? i always have mine on set to the police station in my town and i am always hearin sum crazy shit on it. this morning there was a guy who was tryin to jump off a bridge n i was listenin to all the police chatter n shit. ive even saved a few of my friends who were bein searched for by the cops, told em were to go so they wouldnt find em.

    if you dont have a scanner u should get one!
  2. I honestly don't know but are they legal?
  3. i guess in some places you can stream it over the internet but not where i'm at
  4. haha sounds entertaining but yeah I would get one if I knew how
  5. Yes, they are legal. I bought mine at radio shack, it was about $70.
  6. I've got two. A huge one in my basement, and a portable one in my car. They're really funny to listen to baked.
  7. I have no idea why they are legal but w/e. We have used them before if we are having a fire in the woods or something. Come in handy
  8. I think it's illegal to have one in your car. don't hold me to that, though.
  9. I've heard a lot of stories pertaining to someone having a scanner in their car, and everyone said it was illegal. So with the majority of people saying it's illegal to have in your car, I guess so, otherwise, you're scot-free.

    I would love to have one right now though, sure would explain why I seen nothing but ETF and police helicopters up the street last night...
  10. ya that wouldnt surprise me if it was illegal to be in your car.
