Welcome to RR. See my answer here: http://forums.radioreference.com/new-user-getting-started-forum/230584-nepa-help.html#post1681937Hi was looking for a scanner info for the Luzerne & Lackawanna counties in Pa.,I was wondering are these area's digital or analog and any recomendations on a scanner .Thanks
Yes they should all be accurate. I'm not sure where you are or what kind of antenna you're using, but try 157.4500 and see if you hear anything. That's a pretty active frequency in Luz Co. Mybe try the weather freq 162.5500 and see how you do. It's possible that your combination of antenna and location may limit what you can and can't hear.Hello, I am Chucks son, and I was wondering if the freqs listed on the Luzerne county page are correct. I cannot find anything on them. Am I doing something wrong? Also, I am particularly interested in the airport ones, as well as the railroad ones.
Again I'm not familiar with your scanner, but many times the stock antenna are not so hot. If you cen get an outdoor antenna, you'll hear quite a bit more. Even one in the attic will do a lot better. Of course that implies you have some ability to setup the antenna, mount, coax...Update: Got something on 157.4500!
I do have an application on my Android tablet so I have listened to the Wilkes Barre zone B feed before.There are a lot of good/better antenna for mobile use. I can;t recell the model now, but I have one I use when we travel. Otherwise my radios (and the mobile radio) are connected to an outdoor antenna. They just work so much better I never went back.
If you go on the Radio Reference Live AUdio link above and tune into the streams from Luzerne Co while your radio is on, you'll get some idea of what you may not be hearing. Keep in mind there is a delay on the feeds.
