• 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:

Hello, I'm up here in Santa Fe mountains near Pecos and we get Black Hawks from time to time, today we had a flight of three go by, does anyone know where they come from, I'm guessing they are ANG but are they from NM? Any idea what frequency to monitor VHF or HF?
Thanks

Click here------> RadioReference.com - Scanner Frequencies and Radio Frequency Reference Database

Pick your state, and ajoining states. Then click on the countys with military bases ( you can Google the military bases ). When you get a particular state clicked on, scroll down and click the "Area Wide" aviation frequencys that pertain to you. Also, airports in the countys which have air bases.

Most of the time, the helicopters are below 10,000 feet, which is an asset to them, because most usually, they dont have to talk on the radio. They still need to talk when they transit near an airport, to check for other aircraft. Research and find the military base they are startioned at, and you can hear them talk to their operations.....You will only hear the helicopter if they, or you are at a high enough altitude/elevation, as broadcast is from "point to point" , so to speak - there is no repeater traffic for a large part of military aircraft comms.


Monitoring & searching VHF- low band, and VHF- high band. ( 30-52 mhz & 138-144 mhz )

The Guard out of Santa Fe uses the following:

41.00 FM TAC (active a few days ago)
123.025 VHF Ops
302.2 UHF Ops

Let us know what you hear up in the Pecos...
