    I am picking up tones and chirps and such on 143.760, sounds kind of like an old dial-up modem. Any ideas as to what it is?

    Do you have cable TV in your area ?

    If so, It could be cable leakage.

    Good Luck.

    I can't find a reason to listen above or below the ham bands. Could be anything. Lots of services authorized outside the ham bands, and several authorized inside the ham bands that aren't exclusive.

    The actual frequency is more likely 143.7625 and is a federal government allocation. Are you near any military bases or airports?

    Good point, and also 'who cares.' Why do people tune their ham rigs outside the ham bands...I can't recall ever doing that in 50 years of hamming.:p

    He could be a scanner user. Or, a MARS member. Lots of reasons to listen outside of the ham bands. Some folks even listen to SW stations :)

    To answer the question, that is also the aural carrier frequency for cable channel 17.

    I am a little ways away from Tyndall AFB and there is an airport a few miles from my house, but cable channel 17 makes the most sense to me.

    If it is the aural, he'd hear the channel audio not beeps and tones. Most cable systems are digital and no longer transmit NTSC, so I am not sure this is cable.

    It could even be a computer near by.

    If you set your SDR Dong antenna next to a computer with the side removed, You hear all kinds of Aliens and UFOs, when you scan the spectrum.

    I thought I was the only one that knew what a Dialup Modem sounds like. :eek:
