• 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 all!

Does anyone know the frequencies used to monitor the FDNY on melsgarage.com? I cant seem to find them anywhere. They are not the usual 154.430,154.4,154.37,154.25,154.19 set. Please check out the live feed and I defy anyone to find it on their scanners. I tried all the other freq. in the Scanner Master book and websites out there.
Please help! I'm getting a little frustrated. I have a Pro-528 scanner.
Thanks for your help,
Walter

It does appear to be the correct frequencies for us. I can hear Bronx and SI very well but Brooklyn isn't coming in at all. Either his frequency isn't set correctly or his receiver is being interfered with.

The IP address is in Hackensack, NJ, so maybe he needs a better radio or a rooftop antenna.

Thank you Frank!
It seems strange to me that I had my scanner on those frequencies when listening to Mel's feeds but heard nothing like his. I sent him an email but have not heard back from him yet.
