phone conversations. I have a scanner I picked up for $10 (old RS
8-channel model that was very beatup) that could pickup VHF/UHF. I've
received as many as 8 conversations (cordless) at once (half of which
crystal-clear, and the others listenable). But I've found most conversations
to be incredibly bland and boring. And as for the ones of interest, well
there's some things I'd rather not know, as these people are all local.
I have heard people I know personally, and things of great consequence
(like someone who was telling her ex-boyfriend she thought she was
pregnant... something I'd rather not know when I know her). Anyways,
the scanner now sits in my closet collecting dust. So my question simply
is, why do people listen?
