I presume as you mention tranceiver you don't include airband receiver as although uk law states it is illegal to receive (listen) to aircraft radio transmitted messages no one in the UK enforces that law & it is quite common to see individuasl by airport peimiter fences also in the airport itself using airband radios, and long may it continue.
