850 on 70cm-
 
Not sure if all you know this, but 450.050 is KOA. Our one and only TV is off and stored this weekend while we have our floor refinished, so I am compelled to listen to the Bronco game on the radio. Sitting here with the laptop and my VX-3.. actually sounds just fine, and quite handy. Go Broncos. :beer:

This was one of the first things I discovered when scanning 70cm a long time ago.. are there any other radio broadcasts that you know of on either 2m or 70cm?

It's station KJJ372.

Most TV and radio stations have auxiliary frequencies in the VHF and now more often in the UHF bands. They use these secondary allocations for all sorts of things, studio-to-transmitter links, remote pickup units, field source linking. Think about how much of a PITA it would be to put a MF AM radio on a helicopter compared to a UHF FM radio.

If you scan around you'll find a lot of them across 160-170 and 450-455.
