• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

Anyone know what type of weather freq. this is. Haven't been able to locate anything online yet with this.
4.3167 USB

Sounds like a maritime type weather. Mention of CAMSLANT and Chesapeak
The frequency is 4316.0 KHz USB and it is one of many used for MF/HF weather products issued by the U.S. National Weather Service, Tropical Prediction Center, etc, These are then broadcast (remote-keyed) by USCG CAMSLANT CHesapeake, VA and USCG CAMSPAC Pt Reyes, CA.

Voice, SITOR, NAVTEX, WEFAX are examples of the types of transmission of weather products. The Voice, SITOR and WEFAX are typically simulcast on three consecutive HF frequencies. Navtex is bcst only on 518.0 KHz (carrier is on 516.35 KHz).
