Default Channel use information

I am looking for the use/ purpose of these channels. I have a department issued 7/800 mhz portable with these channels in it along with our primary use channels but i wasn't sure what the purpose of these are. Thanks in advanced if anyone has any information.

They are intended as national interoperability channels. They exist in each band, and theoretically can be patched together across bands to allow everybody to communicate on a common channel

As Ed has mentioned - They are for INTEROP [not just Nationally]
Use will vary by State/County/Parish/Locality and by training or lack of.

I would suggest you read this document for more info

Also some info from MR GOOGLE here
