Next time, I hope at least 50 people respond with educated guesses, moronic guesses & drunken guesses!

Does it somehow hurt you to just put the freqs-into your scanner, or do you have that new model that charges you $10 per frequency?

Spend more time on RR, and you'll realize it's WONDERFUL that 340 people viewed your post, knew that they didn't have anything helpful to contribute, and so they didn't respond.

Default with the new scanners

they get thousands of frequencies.
since i started listening i have vacuumed up frequencies.
i don't delete them.
even under the thunderbirds i have a 66 Mhz freq.
i never heard a thing there, but, maybe one day...
just like the folks that want the pl tone.
if it gets changed you get nothing.
i would leave it in, no matter what.

Depends.
Yes and No
Answers could vary by Region, State, CONUS, OCONUS, US&P

a Location of "Suburban Hell" doesn't exactly help anyone to narrow down where you are on the Planet Earth

Some Frequencies got eliminated as they belong to the MIL, others added.

And only monitoring will Tell, when the Big One hits. As with most agencies, Cellphone/Tablets are used, unless the infrastructure is damaged.

Another sources is

Also, FEMA does use SatRad (Satellite Radio) to talk to State EOCs.... Every State EOC is equipped with one.

Also, some have VHF/UHF access to a Regional Repeater or the National Repeater Network as well....in addition to the old ST251's now replaced by the G2's under MSV now Skyterra

Only constant/careful searching will determine use in your area.
IT could be a monthly radio test, or it could be daily.

I have much the same policy. I have a BCT15X that I have dedicated to federal frequencies and "SHTF" frequencies. Rarely do I hear any activity (mostly what I pick up is late-night chatter between law enforcement on mutual aid frequencies) but I monitor this stuff anyway, "just in case". I even monitor the old VHF low band Arkansas LE frequencies of 37.240, 37.200, and 37.100 even though I haven't heard anything on those frequencies in more than ten years. Why? Because most counties and state agencies maintain active licenses for those frequencies. If something really BAAAAD happens (like an 8.6 magnitude earthquake along the New Madrid fault, or a solar EMF occurs) and AWIN goes completely off-line, those old VHF low frequencies may suddenly come back to life.

Sorry, no audio intercepts of FEMA goons rounding up people to put in their mass concentration camps. LOL

I hear FEMA daily on UHF, completely encrypted. Nary a peep on the old VHF stuff.

FAS has a long list of FEMA freqs but note that many will not be used at all, unless there is a massive deployment in your area.

Willing to share the approximate area and frequency or frequencies you're hearing them on?

You can find them on this website under Nationwide frequencies. In my experience the channel numbers are incorrect, but the NACs and frequencies are in use.

Other than the HF, the VHF/UHF are well out of date

I think he was asking... Where you are hearing (City, State, County) them, and on What Freq in your area.

I have seen this list before, this same data appears on numerous websites. Especially telling is the 2nd part of the data, which is from a newsgroup post dated 1994!

I've heard enough unencrypted stuff to know the channel names are wildly inaccurate, but enough to confirm it's FEMA I'm hearing. 93-95% AES encrypted.
