    Count me in. As a former dispatcher, I like to listen in and be aware of any activity near my site. I don't listen to it at home though.

    We scan the local departments at work and have thier channels programmed into our portables so everyone can keep track of whats going on and talk with the locals if the need arises. I don't have a scanner at home and turn off my portable, I figure if something happens I'll find out soon enough when the phone rings.

    Police scanner

    Listening to the police scanner has been my hobby for a very long time now. It helps me on the job also.

    In Quebec French is the offical language. There is about 20% of the population that is English. (I'm one of them!) I went to school in English & in those days the teaching of French was not very good. (It is one of the reasons I could not join a police force when I finished college). I'm like a Cubian in Florida. It is still possible to live in English in Montreal. My wife for example, works in English schools. 80% of our TV is from the US & therefore in English. Most of the French I have learned has come from listening to the scanner.

    As supervisor for 3 hotels the scanner also comes in handy to hear when the police or fire departments are respionding to one of the hotels. My staff are supposed to call me but obviously can't while the emergency is still on going.

    Any other scanner buffs out there?
