Hi Folks,

Background:
Out of the blue my wife buys me a BCT15X for Christmas. I have never owned a scanner before and the learning curve is near vertical. A few days ago I find proscan and it's bandscope function.

Question:
Why am I getting NOAA from Pensacola that is normally on 162.4 on 923.8 NFM? Did someone modify an old phone as a repeater?

Just Curious

Depending on how close you are to the NOAA transmitter site, you could possibly be picking up a harmonic frequency since the 923 Mhz frequency is very close to the 5th harmonic of the WX frequency.
