Anybody know where I can buy me a scanner to listen in on my neighbors phone calls? I heard you could do that with a scanner.

Go to a pawn shop and buy an old school short wave radio. I wasn't trying to do it on purpose but I found that out by accident a long time ago.

Didn't think you could do that if the cordless was 5.8 meg or something like that. Oh I would love to know.

I don't have a clue but somewhere around 1997 I bought an old short Wave radio and at the low end of the scale I started picking up my cordless phone and my neighbors from half a mile away. I didn't use it to listen to them though and I sold the Short wave awhile back. The technology may be different now.

Sometimes speakers from like amps will pick up calls, I think it sucks & usually you don't know who you are listening to anyway but i just turn down my amps when it happens.. Kind of freaked me out a little wandered if I were hearing voices but it was confirmed by someone else there..

However, It is against the law to do stuff like that on purpose I think-pew I hope so I don't want people butting in on my conversations!

So is it cell phones they are picking up? or is it portable phones like cordless home phones?

It is illegal to listen to cellular and cordless phone conversations!
Just because a radio can tune into the frequencies, does not make it legal to do.

I had a scanner for around 30 years and you could pick up phone calls on it.I wasn't interested in that, you missed police calls and other things being nosy.I still have the scanner but since police changed theirs and you can not picked them up mine is not plugged up anymore.
Don't know this as being the truth but heard you can buy a scanner for $400. at radio shack that does pick up police.
for sure

you dont need a scanner just use what you got right now(computer) to listen too them dont spend $400 when you start digging around start your search engine with free then type the rest in...I would put more info on here about the subject but i dont want too help out any meth heads....also the newer cell phones can be set up through the net too act just like a police scanner...and too the ones saying it is against the law too pick up cell phones and cordless phones of other peoples...well check this out when anything goes into the air it is free game,just like the tv waves that people watch for free it is free game,i know here it comes someone will have something to say about it(iam wrong) but check this out listen too learn,dont listen too run that mouth about stuff you dont have a clue about.

Then keep the radio signals out of my house if you don't want me to listen to them.
If its floating around in my living room then I can listen, watch, read, etc. if I know the technology to do so.

Personally I think listening in on private phone calls is a total invasion of our rights to privacy!!! More rights being taken away daily it seems!! Folks need to get a LIFE and MIND THEIR OWN DANG BUSINESS!!!! Good GRIEF!!!!
