    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

On a trip to Vermont this past weekend, I let my VX-6 scan 450-451 and 455-456 MHz while in the Newark area. I found the following:

450.0875 - WCBS-880 - Traffic reports from helicoptor.
450.3875 - WNBC-4 - Audio from Today Show (not continuous).
450.8125 - Unknown: who??? - Traffic reports.

Although these remotes aren't as busy as 10-20 years ago, they still can be interesting. Do you know of other frequencies? Thanks.

73, Tom

I hate throwing water on a party, but remote broadcast transmissions are "protected" by ECPA'86. I wouldn't be boasting too loudly about listening to that stuff.

Mick, thanks for http://www.wiscomm.com/media/nycmedia.htm and thanks for a very interesting link. Sorry for the delay in replying; I've been backed up here. Actually, I looked at the home page and found the national listing that includes Philadelphia. I'm about 30 miles from the city and that selection is of day to day interest as I can hear some of the media freq's while in the car.
