Hi All

I'm picking up a couple of truck drivers ? on 150.0000 mhz right now somewhere close to libby. Canadian truckers maybe ? Scanned through the other frequencies to see if it might have been an image and not getting them. Hmmmm

Ok, checked the fcc genmen site and there are a lot of industry users on that frequency in the us. So must be truckers passing through.

150.0000 is not a valid US Business Freq.

What you are likely finding in the FCC is the "DEMO" licenses, which allow a
Radio Shop/Salesperson to Demo a Radio on a short-term basis.

If you click on the license, then on the Frequencies, you will see it is for a Range
ie: 150-174

Oops !!! Yeah I seen that. Hmmm. Those truckers were back again this morning in libby for awhile. I wonder if they are going to the weigh scales behind the old lumber mill ? Could be as a lot of trucks go there to get their weight. There is a public walk path just to the east of the shack so I might take my portable with me down there when I here them next time. Ah, they show up on wednesday mornings, ok.

150.0? Bootleggers.
There is a small internationally allocated satellite band from 149.9-150.05. There should not be any FM voice users there.

Hi nd5y

yeah, I know about the satellite band there as I sometimes get a satellite on 150.0150 mhz.

Their back again. The truckers are on 150.0000 mhz right now, talking. They are from missoula I think. They run between missoula, kalispell and libby. I hear them mention missoula and kalispell a lot. Chip truck drivers maybe? Missoula cartage ?

I'd be astonished if they were Canadians on precisely 150.0000. Alberta and British Columbia have a bunch of frequencies that are allocated in both provinces for truckers to yap on.

154.10000 LADD-1
158.94000 LADD-2
154.32500 LADD-3
173.37000 LADD-4

Being truckers, they are not always adhering perfectly to the rules, so you may hear them in MT on these freqs. I know that it's happened at least once....


(and don't ask me what the acronym 'LADD' stands for... I have no idea... Logging And Drilling D-something, perhaps?)

That 150.0150 mhz stuff I'm hearing is very weak. sounds like some kind of data signal. Earth station to space (satellite) transmission. I wonder where it's coming from?
