    Decent video for starting with a $20 RTL-SDR https://www.amazon.com/NooElec-NESDR...ds=nesdr+smart and SDR# which is a free program to download/use http://airspy.com/download/

    Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.

    Trunked radio with the RTL-SDR

    And you can ignore the frequency shift with the new 0.5 PPM TCXO (Thermally Compensated Cystal Oscillator) SDR https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01HA642SW?psc=1 It's frequency stability is dead on

    Cav,
    Here something u might want to play with.
    It uses USB, but I have read where fine tuning on AM radio could bring it in.

    It the marine weather/sea forecast.
    I would sure like to find the same for the USA land mass.

    You use a radio to receive the fax signal, then a program (SeaTTY) decodes the audio that you have feed into the soundcard from the radio.

    You don't need to register it.

    T dale is correct. I was in my radio room for about two hours today before coming down to cook up these taters. It was mostly contesting on 40 meters when I was monitoring.

    Locally when my friend and I hook up on 2 meters we switch frequencies locally to 160 meters. It is not usually crowded and works out fine for us here locally. Neither of us are into contesting or working all states or such. But for those who are..bon appetit.

    Good Frequency list T dale...covers most of what one needs.


    Good luck to all on the bands and a very 73,

    The Radio Reference database is a great resource for finding frequencies of interest. Lots of duplicates with Tdale's list, but many frequencies used nationwide are listed here: http://www.radioreference.com/apps/d...tab=nationwide

    For a list of your State/County frequencies start here:
    http://www.radioreference.com/apps/db/

    School buses or college campus security might be good if you have kids in school. I'll sometimes scan our local road crew / public works depts following storms.

    A complete list of all FCC license holders in your area can be obtained by doing an Advanced Search from this link:
    http://wireless2.fcc.gov/UlsApp/UlsS...rchLicense.jsp

    The listings are by address of the license holder so it doesn't always mean the frequencies will be in use in your area. There's a geosearch option too. Where I used to live one local TV station would sometimes use VHF for their news crews/reporters on the scene.
    Everything marked, everything 'membered. You wait, you'll see.

    Using the RTL-SDR with an android Cellphone and SDR Touch App https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...ndrosdr2&hl=en

    This is a good app for basic scanning, it won't do the Trunk tracking or decode the digital modes like you can with DSD run on a $100 WinX Tablet PC , but it gives you a decent on the go scanning solution with just your Cellphone and an OTG adapter

    I prefer to use a powered OTG adapter https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1 so that I don't kill my phone's battery life by having to power the RTL-SDR receiver, I power everything with my portable 26,000 mAh battery https://www.amazon.com/dp/B016DA61V2...ing=UTF8&psc=1 And I keep it charged with this Portable Solar panel even if the grid goes down https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1
