I have not logged it in the Philadelphia area, but all my previous encounters with 172.2875 MHz have been the FBI with a NAC of N167 in multiple areas...

This frequency was discussed back in February, 2010:

Looks like 172.2875 $167 is related to the FBI based on a new tone observed, and a radio check heard on it based out of Newark. Maybe has multiple NAC's for different uses??

Also, I've noticed that the FBI Newark Base radio checks vary now by time, but mostly based around the :15 & :45 past the hour still.

Which is why folks are generally taught/helped with Do Not Post actival Surv info, however apparently you want to loose the entire opportunity to Grow the monitoring of Feds by asking for the thread to be deleted ? Not.

36 posts ? :) :( :)

What you will find on Wide-Area Federal Systems is that they have multiple Repeater sites with a common input frequency. This allows them to cover larger Areas, as such from a scanner perspective, you might be listening to a NNJ Operations, but hearing it on the Central NJ Rptr (since they are linked)
