Now the Yausu HT's (and mobile rigs) would allow monitoring, but they also give a TX Error should you attempt to key up. Yes there's a way around this, but it's not something I have done nor do I have any plans to do so.
Thanks for the channels Stan, I'm going to type a few of these in and listen in a bit.
Good to know Tim.
For where you live, you can probably hear plenty on 128.65 too. That's Denver Center ARTCC up in Longmont. They control high altitude west bound traffic and over flights into ski country airports.
