In the beginning we had Intercity 158.9700 [Eastern Mass, RI and some southern NH]
In the 70's due to Riots, BAPERN was created. With BAPERN Came some other [little used / heavily used] UHF Regional NETS, these were
NEMLEC, Plym Cnty, Bristol Cnty and NESPERN [NorthEast aka Salisbury / Merrimac area].
With the extra fundings thru 9-11 and the need for more wide-area Interop, BAPERN is expanding [Area Wide 3 and 4 - formerly BAPERN 3 and 4] and have now included NON Law Enforcement onto the system.
BAPERN has added towers in Plymouth Cnty and Pending for Bristol Cnty
NEMLEC has merged some of it's Interop into the BAPERN System which is why the NEMLEC channel is part of the BAPERN scheme.
