Digital noise on Air Band

Postby StormShadow » 28 Jan 2016, 18:01

Maybe there are digital airband transceivers out there now I don't know but I can only assume so from the digital noise I've heard on air band frequencies. Mind you I was very surprised the other day when scanning through air band and heard a London bus driver on 122 MHz trunked system I was thinking they shouldn't be there. Maybe it was bad harmonics or something, it was interesting though.
