Page Description
FYBUSH MEDIA It goes without saying that Fybush.com is at the top of this list. Scott Fybush is the leader when it comes to radio, radio history and northeast radio news. Insight, tower photographs, RF history, and news, are just some of the things you get at this site. The site gives you a free sample and is a paid site for full content. The cost is low, and the value for what you get, is well worth it.
Paul Thurst's ENGINEERING RADIO Paul is the defining answer of an "engineer's engineer". He does a very important service to others by sharing his knowledge. A contract engineer in the Northeast, he has a ton of information packed into one site. I had the pleasure of meeting Paul over the summer and have become good friends with him. This is a site I check out, daily.
The Virtual Engineer The Virtual Engineer is the web's premere forum where engineers can get together for advice, insight, and a little "rag chew". This site contains a wealth of information, including a in-depth wiki.
Scan New England The premere Northeastern Scanner and Scanning Hobbyest site. Full of accurate frequencies, discussions and technical information. The once Cape Cod based site, has grown into a wealth of knowledge and a "must visit" for anyone in New England who is into scanning.
RadioReference Radio Reference is the ultimate scanner directory. Actively updated by a group of very dedicated individuals, and backed by 1000's of scanner listeners, Radio Reference has become the "go to" place on the net for scanner radio frequency information.
