I've heard that certain types of DAB radios with manual tuning can pick up secure frequencies afterall they still use MHz banding to broadcast

And being in the Job you definitely can't tune into Airwave as it's encrypted and runs in the 830 mhz bands.

The transmissions are encrypted. The issue of whether or not it is legal does not arise.
