and some how I am listening to my neighbors????? I just let it scan from the bottom to the top of the list and it picked up on a conversation so I started listening after a while I start to recognize voices and names. What could be transmitting from thier home? A bug or something? I usually just listen to the cops and stuff but this is kinda neat.;P

It could be a baby monitor or a wireless phone. It could also be a wireless intercom.

My kids toy handhelds were on the same freq as my immediate neighbors baby monitor. These are very short range so licensing is not required.

Unlike your situation where you can avoid the freq, my kids responsibly informed me of the anomalie and I knew they would be sharing their surprise with their friends. My friends/neighbors were informed and children counseled not to use the radios on that side of the home. With a little distance the monitor was out of range.

This worked out fine. In your case I'd just avoid that frequency.
