I've been to fcc.gov, trying to find where the frequency allocations are...no joy.  I sometimes find frequencies while scanning that I'd like to find out who's licensed to be there.  Any suggestions?  Thanks!

The U.S. Frequncy Allocation chart can be found at
http://www.ntia.doc.gov/osmhome/allochrt.html

http://www.ntia.doc.gov/osmhome/chp04chart.pdf
found "under" the above page also gives the allocations for all 3 Regions.

If you are looking for exactly what station operates at what frequency from where and when, these won't help at all.

If you are wanting to know who is on a particular frequency, you will have to purchase one of the various scanner guides such as the ones carried by Radio Shack.

I am unaware of any web site that carries a frequency by frequency list of licensees.

Once you find a frequency, look it up here: http://wireless2.fcc.gov/UlsApp/UlsSearch/searchAdvanced.jsp

To see who, in reasonable receiving range of your scanner, is licensed for that freq.

If you have a radio that scans PL tones too determine the PL (if any) being used.

For example in my area police and fire dept's may share freq's: my town and another, ~25-30mi away share a UHF frequency, but they use differant PL's. The local signals are *much* stronger than the distant ones so the local signal easily captures the receiver if both are active at once, otherwise one's signal won't open the tone squelch of the other, but a carrier squelched scanner can hear either, and will hear the nearest it both are on. If you can't ID where they are, Googling for the Licensee, freq and PL will often resolve the question.
