my first plane was a Luscombe 8-A. its first radio was a 2-meter ham rig, run by a marine deep cycle battery that also had to be 'carried along' as it had no electrical system. yep, i was the 'starter' (a handy skill as i've started many an airplane with a dead battery). after a while i added an acft radio.

per cellphones in airliners, especially at lower altitudes, remember that ILS is about 1950's technology. (that's what's guiding you down to 200' off the ground and 1/2 mile from the end of the runway. not much room for error.) they also have to keep planes and vehicles clear of the runway ends when it's in use due to their interference to the signal.

A very many years ago, when I lived in Tucson, I spoke to Arthur Godfrey on 146.520 who was flying overhead on his way from somewhere to California (he was the pilot). Very neat QSO. Per FCC rules, use of a transmitter aboard any aircraft is the decision of the Pilot in Command, regardless of ham, cellphone, etc. Other rules (like use of receivers) are solely at the discretion of the carrier (airline), not by any federal regulation.
