i heard my sharona on 460.800mhz confused me maybe someone is repeating a radio station unless my sdr is just totally out of tune (that would be strange because its tuned by a crystal chip) any thoughts would be great thanks

Not sure what you've found but 460.8 MHz is outside the amateur bands. We have 430 - 450 MHz.
