The DJ-G7 is a very nice radio but if you were only interested in listening to traffic it would not be my first choice. First, as someone else told you, unless you hold any class of Amateur Radio operators license it is illegal to use the transmit portion of this radio. Second, the sub-band receiver only uses double conversion that will most likely make the radio unusable with anything but a small antenna (as pictured) near cities. Third, the receiver does not accommodate reception of single-side band transmissions preventing you from listening to radio traffic below 30 MHz where all the real ham radio communications occurs.
If you are only interested in listening to VHF traffic I would recommend a used ICOM R7000 or R7100 communications receiver or the equivalent.
