I am not hearing anything. I am not sure if it's digital thats why I am not hearing anything or it could be the 90 miles or so from me in distance.danielkarluk said:You could program the frequency in your scanner and if you hear voice transmissions then its an analog frequency.
danielkarluk said:you probably wont hear any public safety frequencies from 90 miles away. If you hear nothing its because nothing is being broadcasted at that moment. If the broadcasts are digital, you will hear a buzzing, real annoying fax-type signal, but at a lower pictch. i dont have a digital scanner either.
danielkarluk said:I want to buy a digital scanner soon, i am trying to find one that covers .5 mhz- 1300mhz that picks up digital tv and digital fm broadcast and has tone scan and has a spectrum sweeper and has sideband and has input finder and washes my dishes for me too. how long have you been scanning? what area do you live in?
danielkarluk said:what frequency do you have programmed in your scanner? who uses that frequency? what kind of antennae do you have? what do you want to hear, maybe i can help.
OK. What about 64 miles into Philly? Will it happen?res6cue_dot_com said:It's not going to happen, that's the bottom line.
To pull in NYC and LI from that distance, you'd need one hell of a good quality receiver coupled with a top notch outdoor antenna mounted at a high elevation with nothing in your line of sight between you and the city. Even with all those factors being "perfect", it's still probably not going to happen. Sorry!
Do you remember some of the frequencies? I think you would have to have an antennae on a tower, and i'm not sure you can hear that far away.php111 said:I don't know much about scanners but I want to hear Long Island and NYC. I have some Long Island programmed in. I have the rubber anteannae that comes with my scanner and I have a pro528.
With the same handheld scanner and stock antenna? Nope.php111 said:OK. What about 64 miles into Philly? Will it happen?
