Re: New England Frequency Database Updated

Updated database as of 3/31/20. I have gone back to the 6 state New England region only and that's the way it's going to stay for as long as I continue to do it. This website is about New England and there are other sources for searching FCC data outside of our area. It is far easier for me to just ...

Re: Incident Notification Forum

The issue I always had with that over the years was how to make the notifications. It's great to post it here but the info quickly becomes dated. When we had people subscribe to it to receive notifications by email, the "mass email" being sent was perceived as an attempt to send spam and it was halt...

Re: Idea - wiki page with common frequency errors

SDR's work perfectly fine for tuning and accuracy if they are used correctly. I have some "small experience" with such things... :D I agree that a "bad frequency" list is probably not ideal, but maybe a Wiki page that outlines bandplans might be a good idea. As to databases, I always wanted to find ...

Registrations

Suggestion to legitimate hobbyists that are far outside of the New England area but want to register, and you are surely encouraged to do so. This site gets crapped on by registrations from places that, well to be nice "quite clearly have no interest in the radio hobby in New England". When we revie...

Re: NE Frequency Database Updated!!!

Not sure what happened there. That data is from the same file. One of the steps along the way after import into Excel is to change the column to numbers and run it out to 5 to the right of the decimal point. So I'm not sure what zigged when it should have zagged there. I'll scroll through next time ...

Re: NE Frequency Database Updated!!!

Only the Private Land Mobile area of the database is used, so MC is not in it. I'll consider adding it during the next update as it's probably easier than the Wiki page which should likely be retired. On another note.... I have now added all of Long Island NY, all Boroughs of New York City, and West...

Re: Welcome to the new Scan New England website

Well to cap off the night I tried to go one step more than I probably should have at this point and blew up the New England Frequency Database while trying to renew it. it's fixable but I'm done for the night; tomorrow is another day.
