Does someone know database with protocol-frequency data?

Post by odyno » Thu Aug 29, 2013 12:43 pm

Hello!!!
Like "/etc/services" of linux system, does someone know database for common standard protocol of communication and their frequency?

For example:
1090.00 Mhz ADS-B
...
161,950 MHz AIS
162,025 Mhz AIS
...
144.800 Mhz APRS

Hello!!

the magic /etc/frequencies should be exist :lol:

I think it is possible you don't find the perfect list because each country has different laws about what frequencies can use.

As first start, wikipedia has a low accuracy information in the "examples" column of this table: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Radio_spec ... _frequency

Also, you will find a lot of links in the same page but in the "By application section": http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Radio_spec ... pplication

Finally, i am sure you can find some pages (google?) with frequencies list for your country.

Good luck !!!

Vince is spot on. It depends on your country.

Start with the band plans:
US: http://www.ntia.doc.gov/files/ntia/publ ... ug2011.pdf
UK: http://www.onlineconversion.com/downloa ... _chart.pdf

Then you can use an online database such as http://qrg.globaltuners.com/ to find more information. Then if you want to get even deeper, use your countries specific government frequency/communications registry.

I spend most of my time listening to the aeronautical mobile and land mobile frequencies. You will need to switch to AM for most of the aeronautical stuff. You will also want to find a list of 10 codes so you know what the police are talking about. I could listen to the police all day. Some very humorous stuff here and you will learn where not to be when your car breaks down.
