SOURCE: Have the Motorolla MD4260 model cordless phones.

This is quite common, it means that the scanner was on a similar wavelength as the phone.

If you buy another phone check with the store to see if the wavelengths won`t mix.

Hope it helps!

Sorry, but the answers to your questions are no and no. Modern scanners are what they are, and they cannot be modified to monitor any secure (encrypted), digital, or cell phone communications. There is no magic fix to convert an analog scanner to digital. If you want to listen in to digital communications you'll need to purchase a digital-capable scanner, but that will still leave you without cell phone coverage or the ability to listen in to whatever secure transmissions you're referring to.

Other conversations on my cordless


I presume you are saying that you can hear other people's conversations when you pick up your phone. Nothing you can do about that - and, worse, other people can hear your conversations as well.

Buy a cordless telephone that uses encryption, e.g. a DECT phone.

I wanna hear phone conversations


Cell phones: forget it; most are digital, most scanners block out the frequencies, and they made it against the law. Only analog cellphones on radios made 10 years ago were receivable. That being said, IF you have an older cordless phone (analog), try searching the 46MHz and 49MHz bands; there were also some analog cordless phones in the 920MHz range, but of course, you wouldn't want to listen to any of those frequencies that I've mentioned.

Will this unit pick up cell phone and cordless phone conversations?


Sorry, but you are out of luck on both counts. It's against federal law to manufacture a scanner that will receive cellular phone calls, and modern scanners cannot be modified to do so. Plus that, virtually all cell phone conversations are now digital, and your scanner processes analog signals only. Most cordless phones operate at frequencies above 2GHz, and the BC60XLT maximum is just 512MHz.

HAVE RADIO SHACK DIGITAL TRUNKING SCANNER, WHAT WOULD i LOOK FOR TO PICK UP CELL PHONE FREQUENCIES?


You cannot pick up cell phone conversations on your scanner. Federal law prohibits the manufacture and sale of scanners capable of receiving cellular bands, and modern scanners cannot be modified to include those frequencies Sorry. . . .

Strange telephone happenings


My guess, assuming nobody recorded the conversation, is that the answering machine picked up before the call could be answered. Check your answering machine for the number of rings before it turns on.

Or maybe your answering machine has a memo record on it that is malfunctioning that recorded a memo
