CHP officers don't use HAM radios, though some carry seperate (officer owned) HAM radios for talking to people and listening to truckers. Also, law enforcement generally uses laser light, and radar detectors don't detect that. Make sure that you don't carry radar jammers, because I've been on ride alongs w/ CHP officers, and some have the electronics capable of detecting jammers, and that is against the law. Scanners are not illegal! However, if a scanner is used in conjunction w/ committing a crime, then you're S.O.L.!!BGReddy00 said:nope its a normal kind you just gotta know the police's number...you can easily get that...they sell the books on ham radios with diffrent numbers
Do a google search. Scanners are illegal in DC and some states. CA was not one of them.l330if83 said:dude, isn't having one of those a federal offense?!?! I don't want to pay to go to Federal "Pound Me In The Ass" Prison.
