Because I think the rule is that you cannot steal signs using devices during the game you're playing.
Your first PP is legal but also requires you to first get a man on 2nd without benefit of sign stealing.

And yes there are rules against using devices to steal signs. Doesn't mean it isn't tried or done.

I assume they do change the signs on a daily basis, maybe even more than once a game, knowing that there are going to be efforts to steal signs.
