Yes,I remember my adolescent joy at discovering that I could listen into PC plod by tuning the family radio to (near) the top of the FM band. I would treat the whole family to,"Echo,Charlie,Fox-trot,bleep!" If there was a chip pan on fire or a wonky headlight,they'd know about it! One day,to my horror I heard the cop saying he was going to my address. I pictured myself being pinned up against the wall and frisked (an overdose of Starsky & Hutch,perhaps?! Although,my imagination didn't run as far as Huggy Bear!! ;D) ) & bundled off  in a police car in front of my mum and dad! The knock of the door came & so did the cop,but no arrest! Apparently,some kids had lifted the front gate off & thrown it into the hedge!! (Almost on a par with a bank heist in the village where I lived!) As if they'd know I was listening to them?!! ::) ;D Oh,and listening into ship to shore phone calls on shortwave (Oops! Musn't mention that!) in the morning! All satellite & encryption now!! :(
