AMATEUR RADIO "FM" FREQUENCIES FOR WESTMORELAND COUNTY, PENNSYLVANIA
These frequencies are current and accurate as of August, 2010. While licensed amateur radio operators can operate on ANY frequency in a number of radio bands, this list contains the commonly used frequencies in the following radio bands which can be received on any scanner. They are good, old-fashioned VHF/UHF FM frequencies, NOT digital APCO25 modulation, so you can still receive these on your good old Bearcat. All frequencies are FM-simplex unless otherwise indicated.
Amateur radio is a GREAT way to learn more about communications and electronics. Many amateurs started out listening to scanners. It has never been easier to get an amateur radio license and get on the air! Get licensed and buy a used walkie talkie for the 2-meter or 440 MHz band on Ebay!
