• 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:

I started out looking for info on KGW's frequency of 450.5125, listening during the 5 PM newscast. I came up empty looking for the frequency in Oregon's RRDB listings or FCC licenses in Oregon. So I widened my search net and discovered that it actually belongs to King Broadcasting Co. out of Dallas, TX.

King Broadcasting Co. License for KTE870

Part of my search turned up a frequency listing from the Society of Broadcast Engineers dated 2003. Lots of great info listed, although some might be a little dated.

Nice find. If you want the FCC links:
Site / Market / Frequency Query

on the drop down: Service Selection / Specific Services Only / Land Mobile - Private
Radio Service Selection / Specific Radio Services / (RP) Broadcast Auxiliary
State / OR
Hit Submit Query

If you want the wireless mikes, change (RP) Broadcast Auxiliary to (LP) Broadcast Auxiliary Low Power.

I think there are a few licensed as regular businesses that you can do a normal search for:
NVT Portland (KOIN)
Fisher Broadcasting (KATU)
Meredith Corporation (KPTV)
and King Broadcasting (KGW) are the big ones.

And of course all of the TV stations own a few radio stations that share these licenses. And I think there are some leased frequencies.
