Thanks for commenting!

1) please refer to <a rel=nofollow target=_blank href="http://www.ofcom.org.uk/static/archive/ra/publication/ra_info/ra169.htm">http://www.ofcom.org.uk/static/archive/ra/publication/ra_info/ra169.htm</a> - it is very *definitely* illegal to listen to all sorts of things on a scanner.

2) I suggested 8/88 with CTCSS because at the time it seemed that nearly all 446s would have CTCSS (and MOST do, in reality) and not all can be set to tone '0' (CTCSS OFF) - so SOME tone would have to be used. It wasn't purposely to needlessly 'use up' one of the tones on channel 8, or to filter out any other groups of users, but rather it was to help SIGNAL your general CQ intentions to other DXers. There's nothing to stop you calling with it, and listening without, so you hear ANY replies. Best of both worlds!

Best wishes, have a good Christmas
