Comment Re:Pi lasts over 13 hours for me on battery... (Score 1) 59

As of now, the Pi 3 is running the exact same kernel and binaries as the Pi 2 thanks to the Foundation deciding that 64bit support isn't relevant to their intended uses of the device. Until they or the community figures out a 64bit safe bootloader and ports a kernel, no 64bit love for you. If it'll run on the Pi 3 it'll run on the Pi 2 currently.

Analog cellular broadcasts fall under that rule. Now, there are limitations on what you can DO with information gathered from listening to those calls, in short you can't act on it. But that does not mean it's illegal to receive it.
