Hello Kamikaze,

You might try the 900 MHz Public Service Band. Even though SCE&G is on the Pal 800 system, all the other power companies in this area are on the 900 MHz PSB. Do a search between 900 MHz and 1000 MHz for control channels and, of course, check the Radio Reference Database.

Good luck,
Barry

Duke owns Scope. Their radios are on Duke's new Open Sky system. Duke does not wish to be classified as Bad Guys who cut peoples power off so that is what Scope does. Scope employees, being a seperate divison, do not get the usual Duke benifits.
