UHF Changes in Pittsburgh?
I recently spotted an entry to the Radio Reference database showing a "new" federal UHF trunked system. You can check out the entry here:
The system is not new, and for you Fed Files readers, it appeared in the March, 2006 column. It belongs to the National Nuclear Security Administration Bechtel Bettis Navy Reactor Facility in West Mifflin, PA a suburb of Pittsburgh. You can see more about this facility at these web sites:
The entry in the Radio Reference database indicates that they may have changed some frequencies in the system since I last monitored it. Originally I had it using these channels:
New new listing has added a frequency of 406.3375 MHz and deleted the 407.1375 MHz channel. Probably some additional re-shuffling of the federal UHF assignments.
