Thanks for sharing, I take it the only benefit off a ctcss tone for a scanner user is if two different users were using the same freq and setting this tone would allow the scanner to just receive the one wanted transmission ?
.... Icom IC7300 HF /6 mtr / Alinco DX70TH HF/6mtr / Kenwood TR751e 2mtr ssb... / Inrico TM7.
Ameritron ALS-600X SS HF Linear.... Cushcraft R6000 HF vertical / Hamtenna 80-10 mtr ocf dipole....... / Vine 5ele 6mtrs / Vine 10ele for 2mtrs.
Behringer xm8500 mic.

Hi John, I had unwittingly set up the scanner on the ctcss search under the main frequency and didn't turn the ctcss search off! It's the first time I've heard a hit on that frequency. You are correct in what you say about the ctcss tone.

Noticed a lot of them have moved channel. Is there other frequencies for that channel that anyone knows?

I'm up in Glenrothes just now and am nowhere near a scanner. When I return I'll set up a search for other frequencies in the 400-500 range and if I find anything of note, I'll be sure to post up my findings! But I can confirm that the range of the broadcasts were from Holyrood park all the way up the Royal mile, so power output and range from the radios the stewards were using wasn't a problem.
