I was looking at various states airport operations, and i noticed that most major US Airports have private iDEN systems installed in the terminals.
What do they use these systems for?
Just wondering

Not sure where he got his info from, but there is a company called ARINC that owns private iDEN systems that are used at some airport facilities for various airport operations.

I'm not sure how one would discover that "most major US airports" have any particular type of system "installed." The FCC does not list the type of system, only the frequencies, heights and locations of transmitter sites, basic emission mode and bandwidth, and authorized power levels, and the radio service under which the transmitter is licensed.

I am familiar with several "major" airports and not one of them has an iDEN system installed.

I'm guessing you've never flown out of Newark then.

Not all Arinc systems are 800 IDEN
Boston = Analog Trunk
Nantucket = Analog Trunk

All you posted was Arincs web site. Please be specific as to which facilities as Arinc's operations in Boston and Nantucket and pretty much others I've monitored are all Analog.

Well, I took it upon myself to look up different airports across the country to find out how many were using iDEN systems licensed under ARINC. Needless to say, I found a lot ofmajor airports using iDEN systems as well as smaller airports. Here's a list of them. (I'll even attach links so you won't have to do all the research yourself that I just did)
