I am thinking of buying a handheld portable CB. There might be another name for it but basically I want to pick up some airwaves like for example truckers use them to communicate to each other. Is it possible to pick up signals from aircrafts?And is it legal?

I believer are after a radio scanner, it can pick up many different frequencies including aircraft ones. I dont know what the laws are where you live but here in Australia its prefectly legal. They vary in cost from $250 for a basic one up to $700+ for a top of the range model. the two things that affect the cost the most is what frequency ranges you can pick up and how many memory channels it has.
