ON THE ABOVE MAP:
- Red indicates use illegal without an FCC license, or permission.
- Orange indicates legislation is being proposed, but use is currently legal.
- Green indicates use illegal in furtherance of a crime.
- Gray indicates no currently known legislation.
What does this mean? Well, for most of us, we only need to pay
attention to those states marked in red. For all intents and purposes, the
rest can be considered "gray."
Should you become aware of a new state law in the books, or of one that
currently exists that we don't know about, let us know immediately and
we'll put it up here as soon as possible.
If scanners are known to be either illegal or
restricted in any states they will be listed below, with links to the
text of the law, if known. If a state is NOT listed below, there is NO
known scanner law.
NOTE: The blinking "UPDATED" icon indicates that either the law has changed
OR the law has at least been checked for changes to be sure it is
current - even if no changes were found.
Color Coding Scheme for BELOW: If it's fine for the public to use a
mobile scanner, but not okay to use in a crime, then the word "illegal" will
be colored green. If the law is just too
vague or otherwise not-too-intelligently written to accurately or
safely interpret, then it's colored a shameful
orange. (If you're a legislator, and your
state got an orange color, then it's time for you to retire because you're
just too confusing to be in office, now. You should hang it up.) If it's
illegal for everyone (without some specific exemption or permission),
then the word will be red.
COOL? Cool. Alrighty then! So, let's go...
