Football frequencies

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

452.1125 - UNK PL/ DPL - Simplex - CCAC Allegheny campus security.

462.325 - PL 67.0 - Repeater - Station Square operations

460.7125 - UNK PL / DPL - Simplex - This has been used for at least the past couple of years. Appears to be related to NFL and the officials.

462.0625 - DPL 251 - Repeater - Pittsburgh Steelers QB helmet. Voice inversion scrambling.

462.0625 - DPL 631 - Repeater - Pittsburgh Steelers defense radios. Voice inversion scrambling

464.7875 - DPL 074 - Repeater - Carolina Panthers QB helmet radio. Voice inversion scrambling.

464.7875 - DPL 732 - Repeater - Carolina Panthers defense radios. Voice inversion scrambling.

468.9875 - UNK PL / DPL - Simplex - Licensed to NFL. Traffic seem to be related to game.

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
464.950 - PL 118.8 - Repeater - Maintenance
464.975 - PL 141.3 - Repeater - Maintenance
