Hey all

Is it possible to listen to say channel 7 or ABC television network broadcast on your scanner?

If so, what are the frequencies?

Yes. Some scanners don't receive it very well. (you need to have Wide FM or WFM mode to hear them properly). You might have to round up the frequency to the nearest 5 or 10Khz depending on your scanner (i.e. 214.750 for channel 10)

Try:

Channel 2
69.75

Channel 7
187.750

Channel 9
201.75

Channel 10
214.740

Channel 28
532.25

Channel 31
553.25

Bonez wrote:Yep, it sure is. Here's a nice big list for you.

As a rule of thumb:

The frequency of the video carrier is 1.25 MHz above the lower edge, so for TV Channel 2 the video is at 55.25 MHz.

The color carrier is approx. 3.58 MHz above the video carrier (N.B. not the lower edge), so for TV Channel 2 it is 58.83 MHz.

The audio carrier is 4.5 MHz above the video carrier, so for TV Channel 2 it is 59.75 MHz.
Hi Bonez.

I think that info is for NTSC. Check this out:
