  • Las Vegas Frequencies

    Does anyone have a list of all the frequencies for the greater Las Vegas area? This would be great to have for the con.

    Not sure, but last year we got the list of frequences for the motroala hand talkies. The "Channel 1" crew was amusing to
    listen too. At one point I plugged my speakers into my scanner, turned them up nice and loud, and just stuck them in the window of our hotel ;-)

      Sounds like a perfect opportunity for my desktop scanner to be put into action. I'll put my FRS radio next to the speaker and set itt o voice activation, anyone wanna give me a free FRS channel? Of course if we find FBI or other radio traffic, the feds would freak, hehe we gotta do that.

            scanning these is a hell of alot funner/easier than using the scan feature on most frs's =]

            Channel (MHz)
            1. 462.5625
            2. 462.5875
            3. 462.6125
            4. 462.6375
            5. 462.6625
            6. 462.6875

              That's 14, I have 186 channels left!

              I got the scanner at a police auction. It picks up cell phones. When I turned it on for the first time it picked up a guy calling his bank on a cordless phone and making a $94,000 transfer. he gace his account info and tons of personal info to verify he was who he said he was! On a cordless phone!

              Now THAT could prove interesting.

              Can anyone pick up the wireless modem talk that gets transmitted for when a store runs a credit card? Of course this is for educashunul porpoises only, we're all honest, but curious!

                Um, those are just the FRS/GMRS simplex freqs. I think he was looking more for Ham/commercial/emergency-type stuff.

                Grifter: try the following:

                http://www.lvrac.org/reptlist.html
                http://www.cityfreq.com
                http://www.freqofnature.com
                http://www.scanware-fccfrs.net/sw_frqsmap.html
                http://www.geocities.com/45peter/NV.html

                Some of these are going to be duplicates, but I figure the links they branch off to can't hurt.

                FWIW, I'm still working on improving the general-use template to be a bit more inclusive. Hopefully I'll have something a bit more complete to hand out before/at con.

                  Something important here: don't confuse cordless with cellular. They're entirely different technologies operating in vastly different bands.

                  A quick google turned up this: http://www.cis.columbia.edu/homepage...equencies.html - mostly accurate, but it doesn't explain a few things:

                  - AMPS cellphones use two frequencies per call to achieve full duplex: a forward channel (cell -> handset) in the 824-849MHz range, and a reverse channel (869-894MHz, handset -> cell). A buzzing sound on a given channel in this range is either the contrrol channel for the AMPS cell or a TDMA phone operating on an AMPS channel (this is normal). Check out http://www.telecomwriting.com for a good cellular primer.

                  - 900MHz (actually 902-926MHz, but you get the idea) cordless implementations vary by manufacturer. You may also find spread-spectrum phones in this band, which will be noticeable by the buzzing sound they'll make. Ditto the 2.4GHz variety, many of which do the reverse channel on 900MHz.

                  Can anyone pick up the wireless modem talk that gets transmitted for when a store runs a credit card? Of course this is for educashunul porpoises only, we're all honest, but curious!
                  Of course it can be picked up. But expand on what you mean by 'wireless modem'; that could cover any number of devices :)

                    I was mixing two facts there. The scanner I have will pick up cordless phones, like the neighbor across the way on her 46KHz phone. The scanner does indeed also pick up the 800mhz range for cell phones, it was made in the pre-block days. I guess by law I am supposed to ignore this fact and just skip over scanning those freqs, but hey I bought it at a sheriff auction, what irony.
