Re: Handling of unknown frequencies that could be inputs

Obviously, we should not be publishing repeater input frequencies. And it's often fairly obvious what's what. But what about cases where it's not? I've got a couple of oddball VHF things I found that I'm interested in discussing in the appropriate regional forums here. I don't think they are repeat...

Hi Folks, Because this has popped up a couple of times recently, I want to refresh a long standing policy here at Scan New England. We run the site as a "public safety" friendly website. We also want to minimize the risk to public safety users that can occur with information that is "released". So w...

Re: NE Frequency Database Updated!!!

For whatever reason, I'm not getting any Massachusetts results when I search in the NEFD. I'm getting all of the other New England results as well as NY but even trying on frequencies I know are licensed in MA (460.4500 or 462.9250) I'm getting nothing. Search without the zeros at the end. Just do ...

Hi! Scan New England has now transitioned over to a secure website. If you change the URL in your browser from http to https, you'll see our shiny certificate. For the time being, the http links will continue to work, HOWEVER, that will not be the case permanently. In a very short order, the site wi...

Are they greyed out on purpose? Used to be able to add color to them.

Re: Signature Lines

The issue is, by default, when you post a reply, the check box below this box where I am currently typing is unchecked.
It says "Attach a signature". Check it, and you'll see the signature show up.

Searching for frequencies in the WIKI

Just a note to help you out when searching for a frequency in the WIKI. Remember you need to search out with the trailing zeros. MediaWiki does not recognize partial searches. For example, instead of searching out for 154.31, you must search out for 154.3100 If you are searching for any of the newer...

If it happens again, try refreshing the page. Whatever the issue is, it's very temporary and resolves itself quickly.
