those of you who have scanners.... : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread

...might want to start monitoring some of the fedgov assigned freqs, and no, I don't have them, but I have seen websites that detail various freqs, and they can be looked up. This isn't for any particular right now reason, it's just interesting to listen to what these weekend training exercises are about, some of the scenarios. we had some here coupla weeks ago, it was 100% scale of 10 doomer scenarios-riots at food stores, etc. most interesting......

Some good frequency guides are:

Police Call; a series of books containing federal, state and local governments, police, fire, safety and some aeronautical frequencies by nationalal region. Available at Radio Shack stores.

Monitoring Times; a monthly magazine devoted to scanner use along with shortwave radio and satellite monitoring. Each issue contains sections on federal, military and international frequencies and there are special features each month covering federal or state agencies radio operations and frequencies.

Popular Communications; another monthly magazine with many the same sort of coverqge and features of Monitoring Times. Popular Communications is more available but is not as in-depth. But it does include more coverage on CB radio, which folks wanting to use CB for post-Y2K communication might want to use.

Both of the magazines are regular newstand items and can be easily found in any Barnes & Nobel. Hope this helps.

I'm so glad you moved out of Atlanta. That city will become a major disaster zone WTSHTF and a probable nuclear missile target. Don't be downwind...
