I just did a week or so of scanning the frequencies at all times of the day and night…
I found that day time i had a few choices , at night however is a diffrent situation, on all the upper channels ithere is tons and tons of crosstalk and bounce.. and the only thing that will get around that is watts.. not a aption… so i just live with it at night and my signal has much lesss range.. soi just play music all night long after about 9pm…
I used the radio in my truck its very sensitive and i can pull in stations from all over with this.. So i was confident that my channel was clear for my transmssion.
Just remember any cross talk from pig boys will penitrate your signal very easly.. it doesnt take much so find a channel thats really clear..
I chose 1610 as thats kind of set aside for public information in most areas.. so its usually in the clear..
Also remember, higher the better, I could have gotten a really clear channel lower but the power and antenna limitations mean we can TX farther at the upper end of the band.. try to stay as high as possbale, but also remeber some radios dont go all the way up to the 1700+
