The frequency groups I have listed on this site are radio frequencies designated by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). They have been compiled from various sources, both books and internet websites. I will warn, these frequencies were compiled from guidelines a few years back, so some might have changed. However, only a few minor changes would have been made and, overall, most of my listed frequencies are in their correct categories.
I would like to cast a hearty thanks to everyone who has been supporting this site over the last few years. When first put on the web in 1999, the advice of a few helpful people got it to be the best it could be. Now, it averages about 1,000 hits per day, something even I never expected to happen. Again, my sincerest thanks to everyone who has made this site one of their leading resources!
Also, I apologize for the annoying pop-ups and ads. They are an angelfire regulation that is out of my control. Until the day internet becomes free to all, that is something that just cannot be avoided. I also apologize for the loading errors some people have had. One of these days, this site will be running hassle-free. I promise!
But, back on topic, the table below covers the frequency banks I have on this site. Enjoy!

To answer the question everyone seems to ask, this site is a reference site for national frequency allocation in the United States. I keep getting emails for people wanting to know what the police channels in Tampa Bay, Florida, are. I would love to help answer the question, except I've never been to Tampa Bay and would probably take as much time finding those frequencies as it would for the person asking the question. The frequency banks I have on this site are intended to give a good start for someone looking for, say, Taxi Cab frequencies. By using the frequencies I have listed, you should find at least one or two frequencies in your own home town for Taxi Cabs.
For those deadset on finding frequencies for their own city, I would recommend to keep browsing the net. I would ask that if you know of any good sites, please post them in my Guestbook further down this page. It really helps out the guy looking for Tampa Bay frequencies.
