What frequency step would 151.1075 be? Is is 12.5 or something else? Also, is there a "trick" or formula to figuring out frequency steps?

That would be the new narrow band 7.5 Khz step.

151.1075 Mhz

Mhz = Million Hertz or 1000 Khz

.1 Mhz = 1000 Hz or 1 Khz

.0075 Mhz = 7.5 Khz

I think thats right or maybe I need another cup of tea

hua, so is that how you figure out freq steps, I have always wondered that myself.

EDIT: I did goof it up - see correction below

.1 Mhz = 100,000 Hz or 100 Khz

But the VHF band is chopped up into different segments. You really need an accurate frequency chart showing the frequencies allocated for each channel. If you start at the bottom and work your way up in 7.5 KHz steps you'll soon be off frequency. Happy Scanning! - Ted

That is correct.

I do not remember where I saw one but there was a chart showing the band plan
which was revised in 2005 I think. Must be on the FCC website. I'll look around
later and see if I can find it or perhaps someone else if they know will post it.

Third times the charm, try again. Add another zero!

I missed the decimal point the first time I looked at that as well.

Here are the public safety and industrial/business frequencies
