No longer on 151.925 PL 103.5 as listed in the Wiki. Now using Sprint/Nextel radios. Visually confirmed looking at one of their buses today.

Not sprint Nextel...Just Nextel (sprint Nextel doesn't exist anymore)

But I don't think this Nextel is a carrier so I think these radios (not made by Motorola) are using an existing cell service for coverage.

It's PTT using the AT&T cell network. There is a New User guide at this link, http://northeastradios.com/pgm-download ... _11-18.pdf
Seems like an expensive way to do it, especially since the radios don't have cell phone capability.

Added to wiki with "using PTT cell network". The specifics of the carrier doesn't matter for the wiki, as all of it is unmonitorable anyways.
