Certainly not as exciting as Public Safety monitoring, but sometime listening to businesses, such as Cary Town Center or similar is fun (for at lest a few minutes). There are some business freq's on RR. Is there a good source for a more detailed list? I would be happy to start one if others are interested.

I would suggest getting a wiki article suggested then we can move the appropriate
verified freqs to the database as needed.
I know I need to do more with Business Freqs here in Wake County since I live on the border of Raleigh/Cary.
Heck I was at the Crossroads Target last night and thought "I should have brought
my 396XT in with Close Call and verified their freqs".
I will put together a starter Wiki page that will list the most common business
freqs and we can modify it as needed.
How about that?

To add more fuel to the fire Steve KG4KHQ had a good starter list
in THIS thread back in 2010:

Triangle Unknowns and Semi-Unknowns
Since Marshall completed what I had discovered about Southpoint Mall in the earlier thread, I thought I would throw out some other things that I have been trying to nail down in the Triangle area. Basically, all of these came from the FCC database and I've been monitoring them when I'm in the area to get a handle on them. Some of them I feel pretty confident that I have confirmed and on some of them, I have heard nothing. Since I don't live in the area, I thought I would see if the Triangle area listeners would like to do a little radio detective work so we can get them confirmed and submitted. Here goes:

Malls
Northgate Mall (Durham)
452.725 DCS 754 License appears to have expired, haven't heard in a while

Triangle Town Center (Raleigh) WPUC301
463.475 DCS 143 Appears to be Security
464.250 Not heard

Crabtree Valley (Raleigh) WPZN615
461.025 PL 173.8 Appears to be Security
464.050 Not heard

Cary Towne Center (Cary) WPYG851
463.275 Not heard

University Mall (Chapel Hill) WQG246
464.575 Not heard

Hospitals
UNC Hospital (Chapel Hill) WPGZ387
451.550 DCS 244 Appears Security-related

Rex Hospital (Raleigh) WPCM287
463.875 PL 107.2 Appears to be Security

Colleges
Shaw University (Raleigh) WPTN395
452.750 Possible PL of 192.8 Not heard enough to nail down

Peace College (Raleigh) WPWL312
464.375 Possible PL of 110.9 Also not heard enough to nail down

Meredith College (Raleigh) WPWL723
461.750 PL 192.8
464.325 DCS 051
One appears to be Maintenance and one appears to be Security but can't remember which is which.

Attractions
NC Museum of Art (Raleigh) KNCV372 (shows to be expired)
155.940 PL 146.2 Appears to be Security

Walnut Creek Amphitheater (Raleigh) WPSM220
452.3875 Not heard

Business
Glaxo-Smith-Kline (RTP) WNYU273 This is an EDACS trunked system.
854.7875
855.8875
856.3375
857.3375
858.3375
859.3375
860.3375
With a PRO-97, it appears to do some tracking with the frequencies listed in that LCN order but I can't confirm it is the correct order or not

If any of you all can plug them in and play detective, I would appreciate it. If you can confirm something, share your results and, better yet, go ahead and submit them.

Thanks

I was recently able to map out the GSK System using the HomePatrol but the other freqs are still up for grabs. :) Anyone want to jump in and help is welcome to do so!
Happy Sleuthing!

The wiki idea sounds good. Thanks. Please provide a shortcut to it when it is ready. :)
