• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

Does anybody know what freqs. the balloons and tracking units use? I will be attending this event and wondered. Never tried to monitor any activity. I heard they may use FRS radios.

Try these and the local airport frequencies for VFR.
151.625 151.625 151.755 151.865 151.895 151.925 151.955 154.570 154.600

If your close enough try a Uniden Scanner with Close Call or RadioShack PRO with Signal Stalker.
