• 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:

Kind of a dumb question and I have tried to look this up and things got confusing real quick.

For northern New Jersey, what are the NOAA frequencies? I am talking about 2 specific areas. First, around Parsipanny, and second in Sussex county like Sparta. I noticed a really bad drop in service and then it went out probably around a year ago. I figured my equipment was shot but it still works.

Anyways, anyone know what it is? The NOAA site is not very helpful to me.

NYC KWO35 was the best for our area, But the site has been down for over a year now. I believe there are other threads on issues with finding a site for it to go.

Hardyston (162.500) is probably going to be it. What's happening is that the NOAA channel and a "three letter agency" channel both mix together and produce intermod on VHF Channel 16. Since Channel 16 can't change frequency, and the TLA won't change frequency, guess what goes off the air, despite it being on for DECADES? Apparently moving it still produced the mixing product.

Thanks for the insight!

KW035 at 162.55Mhz out of New York City is down. They are in the process of relocating the tower however, you can call National Weather Service at 631-924-0517 for the greater New York City Metro Area.
Hope this helps you and everyone else on here.
