    Anymore it's nearly impossible to do. Most of your cordless phones have frequencies that aren't attainable on a scanner or are scrambled. Scanners have those frequencies automatically locked out because the chips aren't included. You can modify them, but it costs a lot money and you have to "know" people that have the means to get the chips and do the modifications. Modifying a scanner, CB, HAM radio, etc. is highly illegal.

    I have picked them up by accident on my scanner. you need a scanner that runs the same frquency. 900mhz, 2.4ghz etc... I think sometimes you will pickup harmonics of these frquencies. I have been out of school a LONG time, so sorry I dont know more.

    technically, there is nothing illegal about picking up waves out of the air, it is the senders fault for not scrambling them. That is why most wireless have a security code that scrambles and then the base set unscambles, making it hard to just randomly pick up and listen in.

    I could be wrong, but I would think that only applies to transmitting. The airwaves are free space as far as listening. any with the knowldge has the right to build something that can pick up a high frequency and filter out the sound wave and listen.

    Building is one thing...modifying is another. A good friend of mine is a broadcast engineer and I asked him about modifying my scanner to pick up scrambled frequencies. He told me that if I can get my hands on the chips he'd BUILD me a scanner, but no way would he be caught modifying one. I think he said that carries a minimum 1 year/100,000 fine.

    I can understand that, it has a companies name on it etc... makes sense

    I used to be a police dispatcher in college. It was really easy to scan the frequencies and pick up baby monitors and cordless phones (and even nutty stuff like fast food drive thru window banter) . I think now most phones have frequencies above 900mhz so most scanners can't pick these up. Some people have also used handheld scanners to pick up the wireless traffic that goes on at concerts (soundchecks). It's been a long time but I bet there are websites now that tell you where you have to scan to pick all that stuff up.

    I can pick up some cordless phone conversations on my cordless headphones. Kind of weird.
