As an employee for WNEP I can confirm that all of our comms are with cell phones--the 153.170 license expired and as news cars are replaced, the radios are taken out----BAD move in my opinion. IF there should ever be a natural disaster, and cell ophone towers are down we would be in major trouble!
Absolutely agree, Bob. Cell phones go down even when there isn't a natural disaster...sometimes the carriers have blackouts, technical difficulties, etc. I don't think I've ever heard of problems like this with radio.
