Default Listening in to amateur radio

What is the best way to find active amateur radio frequencies in my area (Perry County, PA)? The database shows none, but I found a website (repeaterbook.com) that lists 2.

You can just scan 144-147 to pick up 2 meter traffic or also try the 440 band.

The artscipub.com website totally sucks and never ever gets updated.

For PA you want the organization that covers PA - see the ARCC website for that.

ARCC Coordinated Repeater Database - by Location

and for looking over other states see the NFCC listing for those organizations.

Fine I like that website but what happened to Essex and Passaic counties?! I have other websites for New Jersey but I was just wondering?! While we're at it what's your QTH? I'm in Belleville maybe one day we can chat?!
