Is there an area where pager frequencies are specifically listed? I see only a few when looking at the Frequencies for Berkeley County when I know there are others I can see using a SDR. Thanks in advance.

Thanks. I am setting up SDRuno and PDW to get paging information. RR shows a paging freq for the Berkeley (WV) Medical Center. But searching this area does not return that freq in this area. I will keep playing. I can see several paging systems on the waterfall display and can decode some. But I cannot seem to find any reference. I suppose I am just not searching the database properly. Thanks

You can't rely on the db to be accurate.
The 462.775 in the db has an expired license.
Check the other nearby licenses:
You should also be aware that decoding digital (or tone-voice) paging signals in the US is probably illegal since that is one of the things defined in 18 USC 2510 as not "readily accessible to the general public".

The 152/158/454/459 paging licenses for Part 22 are mostly ETA licenses. They aren't site specific anymore. There are still some site-specific licenses out there, but most of the channels are licensed under ETA licenses from Auction 40 in 2001. I hold several of those licenses and it is really convenient to be able to put up a repeater anywhere in my ETA without having to license it every time.

Try 929-931 if you're out there fishing too.
I think in the 40's and 50's too.
