Idea - Wiki page with NIFOG/interop freqs.

Post by n1zyy »

With apologies in advance if I'm a pain... Would it make sense to have a wiki page listing common interoperability frequencies?

When I'm trying to ID something, I've taken to searching our wiki before I go looking in the FCC or elsewhere, because it's such a good source of data. I was just idly poking at some MSP licenses in Andover and thought I'd found something new -- a license for 851.0125, which isn't part of Zone 5. Turns out that's just 8CALL90 and is part of the Tac Stack setup.

If you think it'd be worthwhile, I'm happy to take a stab at putting together the tables, maybe omitting the 700 MHz and "deployable repeater" stuff absent evidence of it being used in the area.

We actually link to the official NIFOG PDF from the front page of the wiki.

Look on the right hand side, under "Useful links".

No need to recreate what has already been documented!

Good suggestion.

Oh! I'm embarrassed to say that, though I'm constantly searching and browsing the MA/NH pages, I'm not sure I've ever noticed that on the main page. That works too! :)

Atleast you are using the SEARCH, so many folks may only click directly into/onto the County pages and not realize the other vast information out there in the Wiki, such as the Colleges, Hospitals, Business and Recreational Facilities...

Here is a unique link for folks to try
https://scan-ne.net/wiki/index.php?title=Special:Random
IT will randomly bring up a Wiki page - you maybe surprised at what it finds/presents.
