Next time, I hope at least 50 people respond with educated guesses, moronic guesses & drunken guesses!wow. 340 views. no reply. the last time i see that 138.225 has been used is 2005. not sure if should enter it into the scanner
do they still use 138.225 or 141.875? or have they switch to 162-174 frequencies for nationwide primary? thanks
Also, FEMA does use SatRad (Satellite Radio) to talk to State EOCs.... Every State EOC is equipped with one.
I have much the same policy. I have a BCT15X that I have dedicated to federal frequencies and "SHTF" frequencies. Rarely do I hear any activity (mostly what I pick up is late-night chatter between law enforcement on mutual aid frequencies) but I monitor this stuff anyway, "just in case". I even monitor the old VHF low band Arkansas LE frequencies of 37.240, 37.200, and 37.100 even though I haven't heard anything on those frequencies in more than ten years. Why? Because most counties and state agencies maintain active licenses for those frequencies. If something really BAAAAD happens (like an 8.6 magnitude earthquake along the New Madrid fault, or a solar EMF occurs) and AWIN goes completely off-line, those old VHF low frequencies may suddenly come back to life.they get thousands of frequencies.
since i started listening i have vacuumed up frequencies.
i don't delete them.
even under the thunderbirds i have a 66 Mhz freq.
i never heard a thing there, but, maybe one day...
just like the folks that want the pl tone.
if it gets changed you get nothing.
i would leave it in, no matter what.
You can find them on this website under Nationwide frequencies. In my experience the channel numbers are incorrect, but the NACs and frequencies are in use.
