Default 407.124Mhz used by anyone?

I had someone ask me if I know of anyone transmitting on 407.124Mhz? Sounds like a government frequency if used at all for radio comms. I'm not familiar with it. Maybe government use? Thanks.

It's a federal government frequency. Should be 407.125 as federal allocations in the 406-420 band are on 12.5 kHz channels.

Thanks. I'm thinking the guy asking got the freq wrong and needs to double check it.
I appreciate the quick answer. I couldn't find it on any list I had and figured I'd toss it out to the board.

Don you have a NAC or Tone for the frequency that would help us determine a user.
