WARNING to local mobile scanner users: Local police DO ask for
proof of your license (amateur radio, Press, alarm system contractor, or
whatever else which by statute gives you the right to carry a scanner). If
you are stopped, say, for a traffic ticket, and they notice a scanner or a
radio that looks like a scanner in your vehicle, they likely WILL ask for
your license. Therefore, you should always carry your FCC-issued
Station/Operator License (hams), Press credentials, or other license with
you at all times while mobile. Keeping a copy of the Florida law regarding
mobile scanner use in your glove compartment would also be a good idea, just
in case. Also, if you travel, you should know the laws in other states, as
well. For more state laws regarding mobile scanner use, please see my other
