  • Mobile Scanner & RADAR-Detector Laws In The United States
    Spotters, hams, and public servants alike make use of scanners so that they know what is going on around them. This site lists the laws regarding their usage. To use a scanner in Florida requires that you have either a ham license, a permit, or that you be a member of the Press on assignment, or a licensed alarm system contractor in order to use one while MOBILE. (Using one from the home breaks no laws.) The laws vary from state to state, too. Know the law before you go.
