I was in this location on Sunday, March 9, and picked up the following on just a BCD436HP and an Austin Spectra vehicle-mounted antenna.

Various hits on ham freqs 29.6, 29.62, 29.64, 29.66, and 29.68 MHz, with various tones.

29.77 with tone 146.2 - other than the tone, this matches Bushwick Car Service in Brooklyn, NY.

29.77 with no tone, had someone reciting numbers in Spanish. Now unsure if this was perhaps the car service reciting an address.

30.58 with tone 114.8 - tone does not match anyone. Spanish speaker with a phone ringing in the background. Taxi/car dispatch?

30.66 with tone 77.0 - sounded like the same as the freq above. Spanish and ringing phones.

30.68 with tone 100.0 - Could not tell what language other than it wasn't English. Could have been Spanish again.

30.74 with tone 107.2 - matches Bell Car Service in Brooklyn, NY. Of note is the fact this sounded like the same office (ringing phone sounded the same) as the above two/three "Spanish taxi guys".

31.06 with tone 91.5 - matches La Mexicana Express Car Service in Brooklyn, NY.

31.24 with tone 136.5 - matches Eastern Car Service in Brooklyn, NY. Geez, these car services are popular with low band....

31.44 with tone 100.0 - matches Continental Car Service in Brooklyn, NY.

31.96 with tone 82.5 - matches International Car Service in Brooklyn, NY.

33.16 with tone 77.0 - no matches with tone. Spanish again with telephones and numbers.

33.52 with tone 77.0 - no matches with tone. Too faint for me to detect what it actually was.

33.62 with tone 136.5 - matches Lower Providence Township FD Dispatch (PA).

33.70 with tone 151.4 - matches Cattaragus County FD (NY).

33.82 with tone 110.9 - matches Hubbardston FD, Worcester, MA.

33.82 with tone 141.3 - matches Calvert County (MD) FD. Possible reference to "Hickory Ridge Trail" in transmission.

33.90 with no tone - matches Lancaster, PA FD/EMS. Heard dispatch to Pittfield Township, 804 Estelle Drive.

33.94 with tone 179.9 - matches Waterford FD (New London, CT).

33.96 with no tone - matches Fire Alert for Westchester County, New Rochelle, NY. Heard Ambulance and Engine 25 sent to 1270 North Avenue.

35.04 with tone 110.9 - back to the car services again with 11th St Car Service in Brooklyn, NY.

35.10 with tone 141.3 - no match by tone, but again Spanish and telephones in the background, so presuming it's dispatch for all these car services in NYC.

35.32 with tone 141.3 - no match by tone, again, Spanish & telephones.

35.82 with tone 114.8 - matches Puerto Rican Car Service in Brooklyn, NY.
