I have searched multiple sources but I have been unable to locate any scanner data for the USPHS. I live in Nebraska near Camp Ashland were the Federal Government is placing involuntarialy quarenteened U.S. citizens that are returning from China. I'm just curious to hear any of the traffic associated with the operation. I anyone has any ideas I would appreciate the input. I'm using a Uniden BCT15XT.

Looking over my notes (unsure where I got these or how old they are) you might try...
164.3
165.3125
406.175
411.45

Also, you might want to try the freqs for FEMA/NDMS found in this document http://henney.com/chm/0117/chm0117.pdf

I'm confident they'll be using simplex so you'll need to be fairly close. They may also borrow Camp Ashland radios so check their freqs too.

There used to be a USPHS VHF repeater in Miami many years ago (circa 1990) but has since been taken down and never replaced. They used 164.300 (analog) IIRC. It was rarely used but when it was, their medical transport vehicles would use it to alert the medical center of an incoming patient. Sort of the equivalent of the Medcom frequencies.

It was for the immigration detention center out in west Miami-Dade back when USPHS had primary medical responsibility before IHSC came to be. The repeater antenna was located on the smoke stack of the old cement plant on Krome Avenue.

Thanks, 95% of my PHS finds had always been "A" Band
IHS and others yes, VHF due to BIA also being VHF
