LIST OF CONTINUOUSLY TRANSMITTING VHF STATIONS
 IN THE MARITIMES AND NORTHEAST NEW ENGLAND

last updated October 14, 2016

This list is intended to aid listeners in their VHF dx'ing endeavours.  If one of your interests is picking up distant signals in unusual conditions the following list of stations might be of use.  You could program in some of these frequencies, keeping them being scanned.  Naturally you would not enter any from your own area that you receive normally, or distant ones on the same frequency as your local ones.   If you do on occasion receive a distant one, that will in itself be a satisfying thing, but it also might indicate that you could scan for non-continuous frequencies from that area, ones that you have otherwise programmed in.  For example if I in Halifax was hearing Weatherradio from southern coastal Maine I might want to scan USCG marine frequencies and see what, if anything, I could hear.

Of course you can also use FMBC stations as indicators but they are somewhat lower in frequency and may not accurately guide you towards reception at higher frequencies.

I am including the primary control channels for the Maine State Communications Network (MSCommNet),  This is a VHF P25 trunked radio system.  You can simply program these frequencies in as part of your conventional scan, as with the others simply as indicators of conditions.  On the other hand, if you program them in as a trunked system and a control channel is received with a good signal you should be able to actually receive the voice traffic just as you would for the 700 MHz P25 system here in the Maritimes.    For a map showing site locations for MSCommNet, click here.

Re AWOS and ASOS aeronautical stations:  I have included these frequencies as I am not actually sure they are continuous transmissions.  These are automated weather broadcasts from a number of airfields in our region.   They might possibly be "on request only", rather than steady.

In the list I have included call signs or other ID only when they are routinely broadcast or otherwise usable in your identifcation of what you are hearing.    Notes are of various kinds and differ from one kind of station to another.
