Static Reported on Airport Freq 154.98 MHZ

January 9, 2013

A helpful reader of ScanningEriePA reported to me recently that they have been receiving static on the Erie Intl. Airport police and maintenance frequency of 154.98 MHZ. The reader wasn’t sure if the culprit was interference or encryption, or possibly some other type of problem.

I have been monitoring without hearing anything, although I might be slightly out of range of that freq. If anyone in Erie who receives this freq and is having similar issues, I would love to hear about it. Please don’t be shy and post a comment. I’ll keep digging for answers as well.

Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.

    I just got a new scanner and this channel does seem have anything going on like it used to – don’t really hear anything (talkling) like I used too.

  2. Yes, Stephanie, It appears that they have gone to a digital (P25) system that cannot be received by all scanners. We’re still working to see if all traffic is now P25, but your scanner will for the most part only hear irritating static-sounding bursts.

    Out of curiosity–what kind of scanner did you get?
