I once asked a turboprop Captain why I couldn't use my cellphone on the plane, he said it interfered with the ILS recievers.

If my scanner can beam to and upset the ILS recievers on the nose gear of a Boeing 747 then I AM worried!

As for using it on the plane, I'm just going to close my eyes and pretend I didn't see you take it onboard Smiley

on mythbuster a few days ago they did the cell phone on a plane theory,they first made a model of the cockpit and all the interments they alll so used a cell phone generator to make the signel higher and it took the higest signel to make a differnce in the way it acted.then they did it on a real plane i can remmber the name (i am still learning types of aircraft) it was a full glass cockpit,thought they could not allow it up in the air the airline would not allow it (cant remmber name) and it did not do a thing they got it as high as it would possibly go and it did nothing,it was a cool episode i will see if they have more info on it.

click here for the episode i hop you like it

A cell phone, official known as a cellular mobile radio, is a transmitting device, licenced for certain operations. It it not licensed for aeronautical use (or marine for that matter), similar to using aircraft frequencies for chatting car to car down the interstate.

As for the GPS rule, I have flown with West jet and Air Canada, and I asked if I could use it. They said they would ask the captain, he said no problem, "If we get lost, you can help us". he said with a smile and a huge laugh from some of the PAX. He said since the GPS only aquires and does not send signals, it was no problem. Quite cool too since those flights did not have the seat back map displays. Nothing like your GPS showing, current speed of 445mph and 40,000ft!!!

I took my Dualband 2m + 70cm amateur transceiver once on an Air New Zealand Flight .  I asked if I could use it  and was told NO transmitters permitted while aircraft is flying  but on the ground was ok

Don't oscillators have something to do with the interference that scanners generate?

I seem to remember hearing or reading about this somewhere and how it works... anybody with a little more insight?  Smiley

Yes...scanners use phase-locked loop synthesizers to tune in all those frequencies...which need local oscillators to function.  That LO leakage is pretty minimal, though...very little chance that it can significantly interfere with an ILS receiver.  But not impossible.  Why tempt fate, though?  That's the way I've always looked at it.  smiley

On a United flight why do they tell you to turn off all electronic devices 10 min before take off and 10min before landing

And united allows you to use cellular phones anytime the plane is on the ground.
