• 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:

What's the call sign you are hearing? Often you'll hear either Sting or Viper on this frequency.

A recorder would be handy, I have only heard traffic twice now, and have not been able to make out conversation, still monitoring with volume up now. If hear them again, and can get more info I will post.

The 180th from Ohio ANG uses Michigan's MOAs for training, thats why you hear them. Check the Wiki page below in my signature for more info.

I switched to AM mode and what a difference, Thanks MM & Palzeke.

Why is the default setting on my Pro-2042 NFM instead of AM? What freq range should be AM instead of NFM?

I heard comms this morning 139.700 SANGB

Generally speaking, if the radio gear is in something that is flying, it's most likely to be AM mode. If it's on the ground, it's most likely to be FM mode. If it's VHF on the ground, it's usually FM, and if it's UHF on the ground, it's usually NFM.

There are always exceptions of course.
