Quote from: arajca on March 28, 2005, 04:55:46 pmFrom what I've heard from National, we are changing the frequency plan in 2008. However, the new plan will be in the same band as the current plan (140-160Mhz), so many radios available today will still be usable when we change. Icom F-50 and F-30 cover 136 - 172 Mhz which also makes them good for many vol. fire/ems agencies. If you own your own radio you can program in any frequencies which the radio can handle AND for which you have authoization to use. For example, I have CAP and Summit County (CO) emergency channels (incl. police) and authorization from the county emergency manager to use those frequencies.As for other frequencies, it depends on your wing. Each wing has different agreements with various emergency agencies to support their communications. However, for the most part, members are not expected to have those frequencies on their personally owned radios.

Which makes it good for outdoors use - particularly in incliment weather.So if I like to operate as a net control station from my bath tub this radio is good for that right?
