I can vouch for the Pike Electric stuff. Today I read one of their radios I was working on. You may have even heard us goofing on a worker on 49.54 today. All PL 67.0.

Question 47.5 PL173.8 and 60mhz

47.5000 173.8 Carrier - no audio. Heard w/ band openings since 5/2013. Possible NC Emergency Mgmt.

Corrections are much appreciated.
You are absolutely right about location and I presume its NCEM cause the open carrier is the only traffic I have ever heard on it. Its in central NC somewhere, based on signal strength etc, possibly Concord, and it can be a royal pain when chasing local area lo band mil-com.

Which brings me to the followiing question. I have perused your logs off and on for some time now as they are a great source of info. the most recent log included:

54.4500 150.0 US MIL - Helos - Hurricane Harvey related
55.0000 150.0 US MIL
60.5000 150.5 US MIL - Helos - Hurricane Harvey related

which took a while for it to dawn on me, that I had never really noticed any logging's of 54mhz+ to speak of in the past. What is the range you usually run through? Was this simply an occasion where you widened the sweep or is the lack of 54 and up representative of results logged simply rarely being 54+ in spite of searching?
