>>That's just nuts. Telling your wife what you hear on a scanner is illegal.<<
Yes, it is illegal. Section 705 of the Communications Act (47 USC §605; too long to quote here) says so. Short version: If a radio transmission is not intended to be received by the general public (i.e., not a "broadcast" within the Act's definition), then divulging its contents to a third party is illegal.
