Digital frequency quick import

• County (required): Enter a single county, parish, borough, etc. into this search box. For examples of accepted values, reference the “Counties” page. If you leave this field blank, the search results will return all frequencies authorized for “statewide” operation in whichever state you specify in the next box. Please Note: Statewide operation does not mean every frequency in the state; it refers to licenses that have a statewide area of operation.

• State (required): Enter a single state into the search box (two letter abbreviation). If you leave both the “County” and “State” box blank, the search results will return all frequencies authorized for “nationwide” operation. Please Note: Nationwide operation does not mean every frequency in the county; it refers to licensees that are granted a nation-wide area of operation.


You are more likely to receive broadcasts that have a higher transmit power. By filtering out low power frequencies, you will increase you likelihood of receiving broadcasts; it will also substantially reduce the number of frequencies returned, making it easier to sift through the results. Values of 0-150 watts are reasonable for this box. A setting of 10 watts will exclude most portable and low power transmitters. A setting of 50-75 watts will show higher power transmitters that you are more likely to receive. A setting of 100 watts and above will return high power systems that cover a large area.

• Frequency (optional): This allows you to limit your search to a specific frequency or frequency range. Frequencies should be entered in megahertz (MHz). To enter a single frequency, simply type it in the first box (you can leave the range box empty). To search a range of frequencies, enter the center frequency in the first box; then enter the range in the second box.

For example, to search the entire land mobile VHF high band, enter “162” in the first box and “12” in the range box, which will search from 150 MHz to 174 MHz. You can also use this function to identify a frequency you found while scanning. For instance, if you found traffic on 150.775 MHz, you might input “150.775” in the first box and “0.025” in the second box (search a range allows you to compensate for tuning errors or filter widths). This would search frequencies between 150.750 MHz and 150.800 MHz.

• Age (optional): Age allows you to limit your search to frequencies that are new or have been recently modified. Enter the number of weeks (in whole numbers, no decimal or fraction) of time in the past that you would like to search. All frequencies newer than the timeframe you specify will be shown. For example, if you enter “52”, only frequencies created or modified within the last year will be shown. If either a license effective data or a frequency first use date fall within the timeframe you specify, the frequency will be shown on the results page. Frequencies with an effective date in the future are also shown.

• Show: By selecting or deselecting these two checkboxes, you can show or hide mobile and control frequencies. Hiding mobiles helps reduce duplicate frequencies, excludes repeater input frequencies, and reduces the number of low powered frequencies that you are unlikely to receive (unless you are nearby the location). Hiding “control” frequencies excludes “FX1” fixed control stations, which are usually duplicate frequencies (please note: “control” frequencies in this instance are not the same as trunked system control channels; deselecting “control” does not hide trunked system control channel frequencies).

• Trunked: Enabling this setting produces a substantially different results page. If “Separate trunked frequencies” is enabled, frequencies that are likely to be in conventional operation are listed in a separate table at the top of the results page; likewise, frequencies that are likely to be part of a trunked system are listed in a separate table at the bottom of the results page. This view also organizes frequencies by repeater site. Certain search settings, such as show/hide mobiles and sort order do not apply to the trunked frequency listing.

Overall, there are three different ways frequencies are presented with Advanced Quick Import: With “Separate trunked frequencies” off, all frequencies are listed together (this is the most complete frequency listing). With “Separate trunked frequencies” on, there is a fairly comprehensive list of conventional frequencies and a list of trunked frequencies. Due to trunked licenses that contain conventional frequencies, some frequencies aren’t shown when this option is selected.
