415.7 and 407.85
« on: January 24, 2006, 04:27:21 PM »
After reading an article about 415.7 and 407.85, I decided to give it a try. The aircraft was in the air yesterday, but I didn't pick up any transmissions. Would anyone know if my scanner is capable of recieving these transmissions? I'm using a Realistic Pro-58 UHF/VHF Scanner. I think it needs a new antenne, because I've never picked up anything on it. Below is the link to the article, which explains the "Northstar System".

Those all the old Echo-Fox frequencies.  That system was decomissioned in 1996.  You won't hear anything there.

It was a really cool system, but there are much better ways to accomplish the same need.  I still like EF though  :D

That link doesn't load for me...?

What are the ECHO FOXTROT frequencies?  Has the entire system been decomissioned, or are there still pockets where it operates?

Nope, it's all shut down.
