Is it ok to listen on them frequencies does any one know.
theoretically it is illegal to listen / monitor any frequency except amateur radio, licence free transmissions eg 446 PMR or CB and broadcasts (be it commercial or Navigational) without authority or an appropriate licence .
If you hold a RYC certificate you can monitor marine channels when afloat .
if you hold a UK business light licence you can monitor the appropriate business light channels ( previously called UK General licence) but not disclose anything you may inadvertently hear that was not intended for your use
monitoring of civil airband is tolerated but still illegal . if you are caught monitoring any frequencies you are unauthorised to, Ofcom can take you to court and the equipment can be seized and if you use or relay by any means the information heard you can suffer additional penalties the severities of which are dependant on the nature of the offence .
It would be very unadvisable to monitor government agencies be it civil or military and very foolish to transmit on any frequency that may endanger anyone or effect other legitimate users although in matters of risk to life there is a clause that allows this ie to summon help in an extreme emergency .
I have no doubt this forum is monitored by various authorities as the internet can be accessed by nearly 90 percent of the population these days even the spooks , they have ears and eyes too and big sticks
