Hey riot act, first time poster, long time reader.
I came across this site today, http://www.scanact.net/
Have a listen in for those who haven’t seen it (http://www.scanact.net/scan/scan.pls), basically I’m asking about its legality? Should I NOT be listened to this? Because I have done some research and I read that…

Contrary to widespread belief, scanning is perfectly legal. However, you should not use information obtained from listening for commercial gain or criminal activity. Monitoring phone conversations on your scanner is also forbidden. Apart from that, you can pretty well scan as you please, though discretion is advised when using scanners in public. For instance, being an ‘ambulance chaser’ and fronting up at accident scenes, hindering emergency services is an extremely silly thing to do. Genuine scanner enthusiasts don’t want to give politicians an excuse to ban or restrict the hobby, as has occurred in other countries.
Sorry if this has been discussed.
