    Both Falmouth and Wareham have radios. I have no clue what frequency they are on though. I have ran Close Call on the BC246T a few times with no results in the parking lot waiting for my wife.

    They have some radios in the Quincy and Weymouth stores but I haven't paid much attention to what they were, nor sat outside trying to determine the frequency usage. I think I have seen them in Abington also. Don't think I have been in any other Wally World stores. For the most part I have seen them on different store personnel's belt or one standing on a counter at customer service.

    Wal-Mart is almost always on MURS (154.600, 154.570, etc.) and almost never use a PL tone.

    Motorola makes a radio just for Walmart it is an RDX model RDM2070BFAAS. The catalog description is RDM2070d 7CH Wal-Mart MURS.

    MURS Frequencies.

    151.820 MHz
    151.880 MHz
    151.940 MHz
    154.570 MHz
    154.600 MHz

    My guess is the other 2 Frequencies may have PL tones on them unique to Wal-Mart since Wal-Mart likes to put stores very close together in other parts of the country (similar to how Dunkin Donuts are in MA most less then a mile a part)

    I believe all the stores should have 2-ways. They had changed their overhead paging policy so only the fitting room associate and management are allowed to page. Unless there was an emergency. 99 % of the pages should be done by the fitting room.
    Earlier this year the company took this a little futher when someone made a racist page in a store. The company had all stores remove the handsets from the phone on the floor. The phones are still there however.

    So two questions. 1) What exactly is MURS radio?

    and 2) what is close call monitoring, what scanners do that?

    and actually 3) doesn't Atlantic Union College use MURS radio?

    I think most people are trying to be helpful here, but here's a thought that I think others have made. Have you tried Google (or Bing, for that matter)?

    MURS is an easy search, which comes back with a ton of info, including frequencies. Same with 'Close call'. Try plugging in those frequencies.

    We can all see your interest in finding out about all kinds of topics, but in all seriousness, a lot of this can be found with a 30 second search. From there, once you have a lot of that info, I'm sure you'll find the other users here more than interested in filling in a little hole or two. Search the archive, search the wiki, search Google, search RadioReference. If you have a question, chances are someone else has already asked it (and received an answer), or posted what they found anyways. You obviously found a post that says that AU uses MURS radios. Search google, plug in the frequencies, then report back here what you found...
