Can any of you guys direct me to an operator who can do a scan of the VHF range for me? I am looking specifically for a range that is probably not being used in normal channels. I think it is around 228., but not sure, which is why I am looking for a full range scan of old technology. Any guidance I can get in layman terms will be greatly appreciated.

222-225 MHz is the Amateur (Ham) radio 1.35m (135cm) band
225-380 MHz is the UHF military aircraft and satellite band.
What is it that you're looking for?

Thanks for the info. That is what I thought. Do you know someone that I can have run the scan I am looking for. I can't afford to buy the equipment to finish my research.

There are no frequency ranges that aren't being used in some fashion, by someone, somewhere. Just because you or I or someone else can't hear anyone locally, doesn't mean that a specific frequency or frequency range isn't being used somewhere else, outside of your receiving range.

I am just looking for someone to do a simple scan for me. Astak tried to send me to a worm hole. My virus software prevented it. Bad karma. Can you help me?

I scanned the website with a bunch of online tools and found no problems. I don't think there's any "worm hole" in Astak's signature.

As for your request, I think you need to be more specific. Exactly what frequency range do you want scanned and what exactly are you looking for?

lol, according to FCC data, 228MHz is assigned to MIL usage..... what you want to do with already assigned areas of RF Spectrum?

225 - 243.00 MHz
• Military

and what the heck is a "Worm hole" on a website? never heard of that........



you call your request "research" im curious now... you spilled the beans, go ahead and open the can!
