The convention calls for frequency lists to show four digits after the decimal place, followed by either a "U", “N”, or “W”, depending on whether the frequency is ultranarrow, narrow, or wide band. Mode refers to either “A” or “D” indicating analog or digital (e.g. Project 25) or "M" indicating mixed mode. All channels are shown as if programmed in a control station, mobile or portable radio. Repeater (and depending on use, base stations) must be programmed with the Rx and Tx reversed.


Frequency 39.4800 MHz is pending FCC assignment for exclusive fire intersystem use.

These channels are WIDEBAND FM, 20 kHz authorized bandwidth.
