You're in Canada, but you search in NYS as well, so it's not so straightforward.

150.8-161.995 should be set for 7.5 kHz in the U.S.

Optionally, setting 450-470 to 6.25 kHz may yield more accurate results, as not all licenses in the U.S. are on 12.5 kHz steps. Searching will take a little longer, however.

OK thanks for the information,
I think I should just leave the band setups as they are then maybe.
That's fine, but just know that when searching stuff in NYS, particularly in the VHF band, you may get inaccurate results due to the step being set at 5 kHz. You may think you've found something on 158.940, when in fact the correct frequency is actually 158.9475.

I get a lot of off frequencies that I think are new ones, I'll try and play with it and see if I can figure out the best setup. I made a not of the band changes you suggest so I'll remember.

When in VT/NH or ME we have the reverse issue of the US Band Plan vs the Canadian :)
or when the Electric Utilities come mutual aid into Massachusetts :)
