Interesting. No indication in the FCC Database reflecting such.

It would be a shame for them to get in trouble for transmitting on non-licensed frequencies.

Ha. Quite a few city and county agencies do it. You'd me amazed how much stuff out there is not licensed and is public safety.

Time for the FCC to start cracking down

Expired licenses is one thing. But, non-licensed at all, that's a whole different game.

Do the FCC actually have any field agents? The only thing I've ever heard the FCC do is chase after Howard Stern. I really doubt that a govt agency would transmit without the proper licensing. Could it be that the FCC simply hasn't posted the license info?

Let's see, Trumbull County 911 was trying to, they got a visit from the FCC and look at what's happening, now. They are in the process of being properly licensed.

That just baffles my mind. How could a public safety agency just start using an unlicesed frequency? What happened with Trumbull 911? Did they just pick some frequency out of a book and start transmitting?

yes. their radio people took random frequencies (they were licensed on 2 frequencies for mobile use, only). And, they wanted to set up repeaters on them both. But, the FCC got wind of it and talked with TC911 and their radio people and told them to get their stuff right or don't talk on the airwaves.
The FCC does have a field agent that frequents the NE Ohio area, also.
