Business: Railroad Allocations

(From the March 2000 "Service Search" column by Larry Van Horn, MT Assistant Editor)

In this month's Service Search column we will start taking an in-depth look at the new Industrial/Business Pool. We will start with the first of four categories into which Industrial/Business Pool has been condensed: the LR or Railroad allocations. These frequencies are 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.
