Interesting, now all of us scanner people want to know what frequencyI have a buddy who is a Fed-Ex (Air) driver and dated a girl that he worked with.... got to check out their radios.
Around here the data and the analog voice channels are on the same freq. The cradle for the scanner is hooked to the radio, and sent in a packet type transmission. The craddle/radio unit also has a terminal screen and qwerty keyboard they can message back and fourth with. When there is data being rxed the unit will not transmit. The drivers I know don't use the radios to talk to each other usually. They will use the terminal or cell phone each other for business/personal voice coms.
But I have looked at the licensing for other areas and it looks like some areas may be different. Also, this is talking about the real Fed-EX which is called Air by them.
That I don't remember, but I did see listed somewhere and confirmed it. It was 800mhz, but really, there is not too much to listen to there. Very little voice as stated. The data bursts will get to you after a while, if you can't find it... I will grab lunch with my buddy and a freq counter.Interesting, now all of us scanner people want to know what frequency
I've called after missing the driver, and they've messaged and he brought it back by within a half/hour.Caesar is correct. I've been shipping for 20+ years. The UPS device is called a Diad and it updates and sends data when the drive places it back in the cradle. They can also send messages from the local center(s) for the driver to meet another driver and pick up missorted packges or make new pickups. (The drivers prefered the older bigger units for dog defense.) The stops/route are preprogrammed.
My FE express guy was still using a clipboard and paper and so his data was not updated until he got back to the terminal; not good. I made the call and soon he had a scanner.
I find the UPS data to be faster and more accurate as far as package scans.
