Cell phone's and Digital public safety transmissions are on complete different frequencies.
Most digital public safety frequencies are 400 or 800 mhz. Modern cell phones are up in the 1100 range I belive..

PCS phones (minor difference) are at 1900, Nextel (looking a lot like a cell tower) will be in the middle of 800, separated from public safety, but today are throughout the lower 2/3 of 800 mixed with public safety.
I also "believe" that cell towers in general can create a lot of wide-band noise that can desense a receiver, but that depends a lot of the particulars of the situation.
What is a Jaguar? Isn't it a foreign car?Thayne said:... I had the 2096 on at the same time as a jaguar on the same talkgroup and the 2096 was completely useless but it did stay on the group. The jaguar was still legible but noisy. .
