Maybe this should be in the Air monitoring forum but figured id get more here.

There are so many frequencies in the database, which ones should i put in the scanner for air traffic control and any other good frequencies.

Would you like someone to program your scanner and listen to it for you, too?

Nope, i have it programmed, but if someone is helping me out they definitely don't have a problem telling me if the frequencies are active.

If you do, don't reply.

On my pro-160 i use the supplied pull up telescopic antenna and only the 160 for conventional analog stuff
the psr-400 that im waiting for will be for analog trucking system and will use a 800mhz rs rubber duck antenna. Im not to far from lga and about 20min from jfk and i get both system loud and clear. I dont know what part of L.I. your in but you should pick up both airports without a problem. Lately i have been listening to ny nj port auth and its very very active. lots of crazy stuff going on at the airports.

The database is also showing: 453.65 mhz as a Port Authority frequency for both airports.

What is this?

Actually, that was my point. If you have the frequencies in your radio already, then you should not need to ask these questions. If you are hearing radio traffic, then the frequencies are active. You should also be able to figure out what a frequency is used for if you listen to it long enough.

This is how it works. If 2 groups are on the same freq they use different tones. JFK ops and LGA ops are on the same freq but use totally different ctcss tones. Go here for more info

Maybe he is asking cause he is new to scanning and might need some help. I did not know anything about trunking till n2nov explained it to me.

Please while trucks may use the system, it is a TRUNKING system.

On my pro-160 i use the supplied pull up telescopic antenna and only the 160 for conventional analog stuff
the psr-400 that im waiting for will be for analog trucking system and will use a 800mhz rs rubber duck antenna. Im not to far from lga and about 20min from jfk and i get both system loud and clear.
