I've just taken a look at the Ofcom regulations for scanners, which have thrown up another question. The unit I own isn't a scanner, in that it doesn't scan frequencies to find one that is in use. It just tunes to a specified frequency. Does anybody know if Ofcom makes this distinction, or if the scanner rules apply to any device? (I'm not trying to be picky or na´ve here, I just want to be sure the practice is disallowed before discounting it.)

EDIT: On a side note, Ofcom only applies to the UK. Does this include Oceanic airspace, and does anybody know the rules in the USA?
