Default PSP Low Band

Here's one for the way back machine. Does anyone remember the old PSP Base to Base frequencies? I think that one of them was 42.160? Or how about the old PSP Low band car frequencies?

I knew I kept those old Police Call books for something. For some reason, I never got rid of my 1997 and 2000 editions. According to the 1997 edition, lowband PSP licenses were:

42.160
42.520
42.560
42.600 Base to Base

That's a start.

That looks familiar. You know I can't find one of my old Police Call books to save my life.

Don't know where but I still have several issues of Police Call, I kept them because my name was in the book as a contributor. When Delaware County, PA (DELCO) went from low band to the 500 band I spent a few days sorting out which towns were on which bands and submitted the info to the publisher.

Even though my only contribution was the DELCO stuff (50 or so different PD's) they kept me in the book for a few years. I remember one was orange and another dark blue.

So when did PSP abandon low band for mobile use? I only recall the Base to Base channels being used in my day. I remember the cars having a truck lip mount 5/8 wave base loaded whip in addition to a 1/4 wave VHF High band up until a few years ago but I always assumed that the longer antenna was for a CB as I know that they did monitor CB9 at one time.

My understanding is that any lowband antennas you may have seen in the past decade have been for CBs.

I remember interning for a summer with PFBC way back in 1997 and they still listed 42.600 in the channel plan for their lowband radios but, there was no contacting PSP at that point on the channel so they had abandoned it before that point in time.
