Re: Beep Beep Beep
- Thank you for all the reply guys it makes much more sense now.
I have tired the 486.9875 freq and wasnt able to pull anything up on that, but like you have mentioned its because i have to be close to the car to hear it.
This station is only a few blocks away from me thought listening to it might be fun but it does get annoying with the beeps coming in.
