Please post any freqs heard. I will then add them to my garage uniden9000 and, take a listen. I am Not very far from hardwood range( via the crow flys), which is on wood juneau co area

Since I have moved here.It seems that in August the planes are busy in the area around Adams/ Juneau/Wood/Monroe and Portage. Guess i get used to the "BOOM"! I really need to put up a milair tuned antenna!

Ok, this afternoon, I had three more hits:
346.525
351.95 (This was probably just Air Traffic Control, this is a known RCAG freq for Chicago Center)
363.35

I recorded hits this morning on 282.825 and 245.00 at around 7:30 CST this morning. RSSI is 0 from my 780XLT with a discone 15 feet in the air, north burbs of Chicago. I did not actually hear the transmission.

for not having a decent antenna(2-440 mag mount) bearcat8500 in a garage i actually hear quite a bit

A dj ??? harvest discone and mini discone from the guys in southbend, are on roof but not hooked up.

The large discone has rg11 and mini discone has rg6.

The planes are very loud that fly over very close by must be in there flight path.

266.75 must be the planes flying over my house 20 over s9. Thats with magmount in garage lol.

Traffic on 346.525, weaker comms on 229.125 switched to discone.

I have loaded the uniden8500 with all of the thread posted freqs for listening today and next week.
