Nextel iDEN is a wide trunked radio system and the frequencies are in the business band Nextel and Telus use the same band plan. It also has the ability to do full duplex phone calls like a cell phone.Thanks! Thunderknight
I just found this on RR's Wiki
Nextel, contrary to popular belief, is not a cellular telephone company. They operate an "Extended (or Enhanced) Specialized Mobile Radio" service (ESMR). It does look like a cell phone, and it operates like a cell phone...but it really isn't. It is a business radio with telephone interconnect, and operates in the business/industrial part of the 800 MHz spectrum (851-866 MHz). As the largest licensee of ESMR channels, they are also responsible for the largest number of interference complaints to public safety.
Is this the same Nextel System?
No it is notYes. It's a cell phone.
No iDEN is not monitorableIs it Possible to Scan the Chiefs?
