Most if not all frequencies used by the Fed's during a presidential visit are encrypted. There are some exceptions on occasion but I wonder if they're bogus to confuse or misdirect any one with ill intentions.Anyone have a list that are used during the President visit?
Federal frequency ranges and channel steps are listed here:
The military air spectrum is way too big and transmissions are usually short. You could get lucky with a search but a better way would be to research some active frequencies in your area. Besides the internet. The Spectrum Monitor Magazine has great monthly columns on Military Air and Federal Communications.
Same here, this weekend I heard CAP Patrols escorting a civilian aircraft out of the TFR (Temporary Flight Restriction) Area as well as refuel operations.+1 on that. I listened to the F-16's from Toledo that were providing CAP (Combat Air Patrol) when the POTUS & VP visited here. Also listened to them hook up with the tanker to refuel.
I think USSS has a repeator here becasue it is the two Former President Bush home town.He was in Morrisville/RDU yesterday and from near downtown Raleigh I got zero hits with two different scanners. I believe the USSS repeaters are localized for only the coverage area needed. A-A CAP freqs will most likely depend on what unit is providing the fighters/tankers.
Good luck and let us know if you catch any comms, clear or encrypted, and watch for the RID as well.
