    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:

Where do I have to look for Utility frequencies? I have looked in a couple of counties in NY and there does not seem to be any listings for Utilities. Looking for Electric Co and Tel Co etc...

Thanks
Stan

I checked Columbia and surrounding counties in the FCC database and the only thing I see licensed there are low band frequencies. They're listed below.

In the southern tier, Tioga, Broome, Chenango, Cortland, Chemung, Steuben, & Tompkins counties they moved to P25 a few years ago. When I no longer heard them on the Low VHF frequencies I created a file for the BCD396T that contained all of the frequencies assigned to NYSEG in the entire state. That's how I located them. I'll attach that usd file and I also extracted just the frequencies to a text file. That should spare other's all of the searching.
