Re: scanner codes to pick up phone calls
Phone calls are considered private, and it is not legal to monitor or listen in to any kind of phone call or private communications without permission from all the parties involved.
Some years ago, the cordless phones were in the 42 to 52 mHz region. They were mostly not scrambled or encrypted. This led to many personal problems for the users of these phones. It was dangerous to give out any personal information on these phones.
The available technology later went to the 800 to 860 mHz band, and were mostly encryped using various techniques for security. There were some models that were not encrypted.
Now, they are just coming out of the 2.4 to 2.6 gHz bands, and going in to the 5.4 to 5.8 gHz bands. All cordless phones are using very complex multiple level encryptions. This is to prevent anyone from listening in to phone calls.
I was reading an article not too long ago, that they are going to soon be coming out with consumer cordless phones that are even at higher frequencies.
All the digital mobile phones are now encrypted which is a big plus. Mobile phones are a necessity to conduct business transactions and must be safe from being monitored.
Hopefully, you will no longer be able to monitor cordless phones!
Jerry G, Hopefully you will get hit by a bus. If the government can listen to our phone calls, I think we have every right to listen to there's, don't like it? Tough! Cry about it,
smbsuckers you should try www.phonelosers.org they have some frequencies that might work.

You will also need to know if your state and city switched to digital.
If not then it should work fine, but if they did you will need a new scanner because you have an analog scanner. There is a big push to switch over to digital radios in police, firefighter, military because it's more secure to use.
The manual isn't online to my knowledge however I did find a guide on how to program it.
"Turn it on. Push the "MANUAL" button to stop it from scanning.
Push number 1, then push "MANUAL" again. This should leave you on channel one.
Using the keypad enter the frequency you want to monitor, then push "E." Press "REVIEW" at anytime to see what frequency is programmed there. If the review button flashes 000.0000 on the LED readout display, you might be entering an invalid frequency. Refer to the list of acceptable frequencies in the Frequency Range Bands below.
Push "MANUAL" to step to channel number two. Enter the frequency. Push "E." Push "MANUAL" to step to channel three. Repeat this process until all the (10) channels are full, or you've run out of frequencies to enter.
Push "SCAN" to start automatically scanning the frequencies. The radio will stop when it hears someone talking, and resume scanning two seconds after the conversation has stopped.
Frequency Range Bands:
20 to 29.7 MHz (10 Meter "Ham" Band) 29.7 to 50 MHz (VHF Low Band) 50 to 54 MHz (6 Meter Amateur Band) 136 to 144 MHz (Military Land Mobile) 144 to 148 MHz (2 Meter "Ham" Band) 406 to 420 MHz (Federal Government Land Mobile) 420 to 450 MHz (70cm "Ham" Band) 450 to 470 MHz (UHF Standard Band) 470 to 512 MHz (UHF "T" Band)" http://newsgroups.derkeiler.com/Archive/Rec/rec.radio.scanner/2006-01/msg00174.html
Hope this helps.
