THE FED FILES -
Welcome to The Fed Files blog! This blog was originally built to support the "Fed Files" column in Monitoring Times magazine. Although the Fed Files, as well as Monitoring Times, ended with the December 2013 issue, this blog continues and is associated with the new federal monitoring column, Federal Wavelengths, in The Spectrum Monitor magazine. If you would like to make a comment, pass along a tip or frequency you can send it to my email address, chrisparris @ thefedfiles.com
FEMA can show up in nearly any federal frequency band, but
their primary frequencies of choice these days is in the 400 MHz federal band.
All communications are likely P25 encrypted. Here is what I have identified so
far. List will be updated as new information is received.
