    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.

Boring, windy, rainy day in Union County. So I did some old school spectrum scanning and came up with a couple I can't identify via the database or my mound of long time notes.

49.890 Open Carrier / Likely Cordless Phone or Monitor / S9+20 in Cranford
450.1125 Open Carrier
451.9250 100.0Hz Open Carrier
451.8875 88.5Hz Spanish / Cab Company
456.9625 DCS174 ****UNFOUND****
463.7500 Analog / Cab Company?
463.8625 DCS364 Spanish / Cab Company?
464.1500 TRBO Encrypted
464.2875 DCS251 Spanish / Cab Company?
464.6625 118.8 Spanish / Cab Company?

Your 464.1500 MotoTrbo find is likely McCabe Ambulance out of Hudson County. WPKD521.
That was my prime suspicion. It's in the database, but didn't come up on search. I'll see if I can get any TRBO data off it, but I suspect I won't be able to.

Here are a couple of possibilities I've heard on L.I.
463.75 DCS732 Kew Radio Car Service, Queens, NY
463.8625 DCS364 Trans America Taxi, West Hempstead, NY
That sounds about right. Especially with the Queens and Nassau cabs being infamous for using excessive power.

This is TV channel 17 ATSC pilot carrier. Actual frequency is probably closer to 488.31
I'll add it to my notes. Thanks good sir!

450.1125 is probably a tv IFB. Wait till news hours to listen for program audio.
If it is, and it probably is, it's not licensed. I'll hold on it at 23:00L and see what pops up.

In my notes, I have confirmed 451.8875 (same PL) as Sheraton Suites On The Hudson in Weehawkin. Perhaps some unlicensed spanish cab company is using the same PL.

456.9625 I have as the input frequency to Downtown Newark Security (which is DMR) on 451.9625.
That's what made me curious because I knew they were the licensee, but this was analog and not DMR.

As for Sheraton Suites, it's odd but of the four languages I speak, Spanish is not one of them. So it could have also been the staff just speaking Spanish. But some of the English words definitely made it seem like a cab company.

451.8875 PL 88.5 is definitely Sheraton Suites. I just confirmed hearing them call housekeeping for wash cloths....all English.

451.9625/456.9625 - I am 99% sure it is Newark Downtown Security DMR (I am not picking up anything analog on that frequency from my location. If you are, then you are hearing something else. Also note that Universal Maritime Ops are also licensed there, but only for 2 Watts of power (also DMR license). I doubt you are hearing them though.

Well I feel a tad insomniatic tonight, so I'll see what I hear later on.
