Help out a newbie please?

Postby Turnip Volume » Fri Mar 10, 2017 9:56 pm

I am having trouble with my new Scanner/Hamm mobile. I have been looking for info on the internet and YouTube for basic stations in my area to monitor such as emergency, weather etc. I cannot for trying find anything. I'm in southern BC. I really didn't think it would be that difficult to find a list. I do plan on getting my Hamm license but would still like to monitor and learn my away around abit before doing so. Could anyone provide me some links or guidance please. TIA

P.S. I have as much luck trying to find anything on my shortwave as well so help with that would be a blessing as well :roll:

I would check out your closest Amateur radio clubs. Here is a listing: http://wp.rac.ca/british-columbiayukon-region/

I have found that most of the prepper-related ones I have found listed on various fora, are American, and usually can't be heard from Canada, unless you're really close to the border & they have a strong signal...
