• 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:

Does anyone know then for the NC area? Especially for Fort Macon, near Morehead or any in Wilmington.
Thanks, for any help, I am still new to RR but already it has been a great site.

Channels 16, 21 and 22 are the most likely ones for the Coast Guard to show up on.


16 is the hailing and distress channel and is the one used for Mayday calls. 21 and 22 and also 23 are working channels for the Coast Guard. It seems like 21 and 22 are the more common working channels.


Coast Guard auxilliary uses 83 in some areas.

Hey EP don't know if ya have a receiver that covers HF ( shortwave ) but if so, ya might wanna check
out the USCG frequencies by "googling" or whatever you use to search.
Many times, especially during disasters such as the Gulf Oil mess off Louisiana, ya may hear some interesting communications. As far as SW is concerned, there is a bunchagoodinfo in the WIKI section
of this forum,,,sometimes I forget to look there first. A little warning, tho..this scanning/swling just may be addicting!!....you'll find out. Good hunting and welcome!!

No I do not, but I do have a medium range VHF/UHF/800Mz antenna, the ones with the scanners are not that good. Thanks and I will have to try that some time. And I know what you mean about scanning being addicting, I have been at it for almost four years now, but boy is it fun :), thanks again.

O, and WA1ATA thank you for the other frequency, I am adding to my scanner right now.

EP204 Also i notice someone mentioned channel 83 for Coast Guard Auxiliary, you might want to google for official Coast Guard Auxiliary non-marine VHF channels which sometimes or most often are working channels for the Coast Guard Auxiliary and will most likely be working channels in case of an disaster. Also each location is different with them, 1st District Southern each division has there own set of frequencies and repeaters with also main tactical channels also.

Welcome to RR and good luck on the maritime listening

As Kenny already pointed out, use the RR WIKI, they are already listed there. There is Only ONE Repeater Pair for the CG Aux now.

I don’t which of the channels that Sector North Carolina uses. The main CG channels are 21A(157.050 MHz), 23A(157.150 MHz) and 83A(157.175 MHz). You should put all in your scanner, since they rotate them between Sectors to cut interference with other nearby Sectors. Also anyone can be active during large events. In some areas channel 81A(157.075 MHz) is the mix also. Much of the radio traffic that used to be carried on the CG VHF-FM marine channels is now on the CG VHF and UHF LMR nets. The CG LMR are mainly P25 encrypted.
