As i understand it, it is only ilegal if your seen to act on the information you hear, as with a scanner as they are not ilegal.....Gray Area time again. But they can be programmed thats all i need to know, cheers.
P.S the YAESU VX-2 you guy's do is top kit, even better with the Rx-Tx hop-up & marine tuned arial, used one for years just a shame they arn't water proof

If you look on the Ofcom website under scanners you will find it is not grey at all, sorry.
People used to think as you do but I have to say it is wrong.

You can only listen to broadcast that you are licenced to.
Other than the normal, radio 1 2 etc, Ham radi and a few others.

HMCG is not one we can all listen to
