Shack Updates

I was granted some room to put a shack together. I have already assembled all of the radios throughout the house into one good operating position. I also now have a computer dedicated to only my radio stuff. The computer still needs some work, but its progress.

I have also erected a Solarcon A-99 for 10 meters. So far, it appears that the antenna is working well, and in the new location, the radio is working well. I'm looking forward to working 10 meters more.

Last pre season game of the year. Some freqs found at the game.

460.975 - UNK PL/ DPL - Simplex. This has been used at the stadium before. It is not very active, and appears to belong to the Steelers. Tonight it was used to coordinate the half time kicking activity and mics to the field. This freq with PL 71.9 is used at training camp

461.550 which had been active at the stadium for years for security was quiet. This may be due to Landmark is now providing security services and may use other freqs.

I'll post more about Heinz Field later

Pittsburgh Steelers Training Camp

Frequencies for Pittsburgh Steelers training camp in Latrobe :
460.975 - PL 71.9 - Simplex - Ch. 1
461.550 - PL 218.1 - Simplex - Main freq. Steelers security, parking, carts, and on field personnel.
466.275 - PL 82.5 - Simplex - Ops. Not used much.
467.175 - PL 67.0 - Simplex - Ops. Coordination of players for media.
467.925 - PL 127.3 - Simplex - Ops. Not used much.

These are all frequencies that have been used before. No new hits with signal stalker.

One interesting note is that they were using the QB and defensive radios for one series of drills. It appears the NFL is sharing the frequency that is used by the teams QB helmet with the defense. They use two different DPL's for each side (offense and defense). Looking at my notes it looks as if they have changed the DPL's being used as well. Neither DPL being used was one that I have logged for that frequency. I was going to do a search for new licenses for the NFL, but it appears that is not necessary. It makes sense to do it the way the are.

Some frequencies for St. Vincent College :
461.425 - PL 141.3 - Repeater - Security

Goodyear Blimps

Chris Parris, the writer of the Fed Files Column for Monitoring Times, was kind enough to pass along some frequencies for the Goodyear blimps. Chris was working on the blimp during the coverage of the All Star game.

Ch. 1 - 451.800 - PL 151.4 - Max 35 watts
Ch. 2 - 451.8125 - PL 151.4 - Max 2 watts
Ch. 3 - 456.800 - PL 151.4 - Max 35 watts
Ch. 4 - 456.8125 - PL 151.4 - Max 2 watts
Ch. 5 - 464.500 - PL 151.4 - Max 35 watts
Ch. 6 - 464.550 - PL 151.4 - Max 35 watts
Ch. 7 - 469.500 - PL 151.4 - Max 2 watts
Ch. 8 - 469.550 - PL 151.4 - Max 2 Watts

It is noted that they use an Icom F40LT. The radio has three power settings, 1 watt, 2 1/2 watts, and 5 watts. They are to use the lowest setting that will complete communication.

Call sign is WPPH287. It was noted that there was not a VHF - High band radio on the blimp. They were not using the VHF-High frequencies that I have heard before for ground comms. I will list the VHF freqs licensed to Goodyear under this callsign, but there was no sign of them using these at this event.

27.490 - 35 Watts
35.040 - 35 Watts
43.040 - 35 Watts
151.505 - 35 Watts
151.5125 - 35 Watts
151.625 - 35 Watts
151.700 - 35 Watts
151.760 - 35 Watts
154.5275 - 35 Watts
158.400 - 35 Watts
158.4075 - 35 Watts

Also listed were the air to ground microwave freqs, but it is noted that they are now sending an ASI compressed digital video stream that can not be received by receivers like an Icom R3.

Thanks again to Chris Parris.

Site Updates

All sites have had the old counters replaced. Motigo was causing a pop up screen to occur, so I have replaced all of those counters. There should not be any pop ups with the new counter system. Please let me know if this new counter does anything funky.

I have also updated some email links that seem to have slipped by the first time I went through and did this.

The following pages have been updated :

Changes To Web Pages

All pages will be changed to reflect my new call sign.

It has been brought to my attention that the Webstats4u (a free counter) code was doing some unwanted things to visitors. I am removing this code, and will be using another counter, that so far has shown no signs of doing anything unwanted.

Pages will be updated and uploaded over the next few days.
