Listening to 25-30 MHz and 30-50 MHz this morning on the G8JNJ “Flydog SDR”.  Lots of Russian LMR / PMR taxi cab comms on 26MHz, 27MHz, 28MHz and tons of out of band chatter all over the place.  Russians on 29.898 MHz USB (getting obliterated by POCSAG paging signals center on 29.900 MHz). 

37.225 MHz FM, with nice strong deviation 16 kHz bandwidth and very pronounced AC hum in the background, YL dispatcher Olga taxi controller 37,225 37.2250 MHz FM Russian Russia taxi cab radio comms VHF low.  The hum could also be a CTCSS tone in use, but it reminds me more of the 30-88 MHz military radio comms that have the tell-tale 400Hz aircraft power supply hum in the background. 

I know low band VHF radios like the Alinco DR-135LH cover 33 MHz - 48.5 MHz and 57.0125 MHz - 57.5 MHz, in regular wide FM (16K0F3E) and narrow FM (8K50F3E for the Alinco radio anyway).  12.5 kHz / 25 kHz steps, which fit this perfectly.  37225.0 kHz FM Russian taxi cab comms LMR land mobile radio VHF low band DX skip. 

Both 38.3750 MHz and 38.5750 MHz 85.4Hz PL tone are known Moscow taxi radio land mobile taxi radio dispatch frequencies, it’s possible that 37.2250 MHz is part of this same system.

37.225 MHz possible additional part of this system.

Like the 38.375 MHz, 38.525 MHz 38.575 MHz frequencies, 41.3 MHz FM and 41.8 MHz FM both fall within military allocations, but they are using various PL tones - No doubt other tones are in use too, avoiding QRM from any military comms, local or due to skip.    12.5 kHz / 25 kHz spacing.
