Non-Trunked Frequencies ?

#1 Post by Robert11 » 04 Nov 2018 14:11

Hi Folks,

Have a new SDRPlay RSP-2 SDR receiver which I am using with HDSDR.
The radio has vhf capability besides the normal HF, but of course it is not a Scanner.

Live in the Framingham area.
Not very particular what I listen to, or try to pick up.
Just enjoy doing it, and have very wide tastes.

All the frequencies I've found in the vhf/uhf range are trunked, which this SDR radio won't pick up.

Anyone suggest any lists, or frequencies, that are normal AM or FM in the vhf/uhf range in my area ?
Perhaps:

Law Enforcement
Utility
RR
Maritime
Aero.
etc.

Lists, or a reference to would be great.

Thanks,
Bob

Very Little PD/FD in the VHF/UHF are Trunked, so you will have No problem there.
