I just checked on my SDR and I have a signal on 156.0125MHz.

I just programmed 150.000MHz into my Yaesu VR-500 and wandered around the room with it, the signal is strongest next to my PVR. That explains why I get a problem at home :dizzy:

if we are all in different areas and picking up this signal then surely it can't be birdies i pick up the signal on sdr at a signal of 9 plus. i am thinking that there is something transmitting near to the 156.000 frequency. possible a area 51 thing :walkietalkie:

It is both.
A lot of the cheap dual bands have a birdie on 156 & some of the Routers produce RF on 156.
And a lot of scanners, SDR's etc have front ends so wide open that Hadrians wall would not help close the gap. So that adds to the issues.

I remember reading in one scanner manual a list of birdies, it wasn't the AR8000 though. I have a feeling it was a Realistic.

Realistic always had a list at the back of their manuals.
