Emergency Medical Allocations

(From the August"Service Search" column by Larry Van Horn, MT Assistant Editor)

This month's Service Search column takes an in-depth look at the new Emergency Medical and Special Emergency frequency allocations currently being licensed by the Federal Communications Commission. Scanner listeners should be listening for newly allocated splinter channels (VHF 7.5 kHz/UHF 6.25 kHz) to become active in their areas. (Frequencies MHz unless otherwise noted.)
