Business Band Radio - this article deals exclusively with land mobile radio or professional mobile radio systems in the United States. See the VHF and UHF Radio Services page for pages dealing with radio systems and allocations in other countries.

Officially called the "Industrial/Business Radio Pool" under 47 CFR 90.35, 47 CFR 90.75 and others...all within part 90 of the FCC rules (which covers land mobile radio in general). Known as LMR (land mobile radio), PMR (professional mobile radio) or PLMR (professional land mobile radio) as well as just the Business Band.

High HF and VHF/UHF Land mobile radio service authorized under Part 90 (Land Mobile Radio Services) of the FCC rules. FCC eligibility verbiage states: Persons primarily engaged in any of the following activities are eligible to hold authorizations in the Industrial/Business Pool to provide commercial mobile radio service as defined in part 20 of this chapter or to operate stations for transmission of communications necessary to such activities of the licensee: (1) The operation commercial of business activity; (2) The operation of educational, philanthropic, or ecclesiastical institutions; (3) Clergy activities; or (4) The operation of hospitals, clinics, or medical associations.

Business Radio is not to be confused with license free or simple license services available for land mobile and portable or walkie-talkie radio purposes in the United States. These VHF/UHF services include FRS and GMRS, MURS and CB. FRS, MURS and CB are all heavily used as a low cost alternative to the hassle of business band.

It should also not be confused with VHF marine although there are specific VHF marine band channels designated for commercial and port usage in the context of marine based businesses and industries.

Below 25 MHz (2000 kHz - 25000 kHz)

2 MHz - 25 MHz, below 25000 kHz below 25 MHz. The FCC considered industrial/business allocations above 25.0 MHz to be intended exclusively for local communications.

Specific frequencies:

  • 2292 kHz 2.292 MHz - fixed or mobile
  • 2398 kHz 2.398 MHz - fixed or mobile
  • 4637.5 kHz 4.6375 MHz - fixed or mobile


  • 2000 kHz - 25,000 kHz - businesses may apply for frequencies in the fixed/mobile bands between 2-25 MHz for base/mobile/fixed purposes, however, use of frequencies between 2 MHz and 25 MHz is limited to backup systems, emergency communications circuits, remote areas where VHF/UHF services would not provide the coverage or range required. Examples include geophysical exploration, telecommunications repair systems or backup systems used by telecom companies in emergencies, and other specialized purposes. Many of these licensed have been depreciated in favor of UHF/SHF SATCOM or satphone based systems.

Frequencies below 150 MHz may continue to use 20K0F3E or 16K0F3E "wideband" FM mode (also known as 25 kHz bandwidth or 20 kHz bandwidth). In the land mobile / business radio industry the term is often “25 kHz channels” or “25 kHz bandwidth”. VHF low band is not subject to the 2013 FCC narrowband mandate. However, narrowband FM may be used on low band. Some licenses will be authorized for 11K0F3E, 16K0F3E and 20K0F3E emissions.

The 25 MHz band (25.02 MHz - 25.32 MHz), 27 MHz (27.43 MHz - 27.53 MHz) and 29 MHz (29.71 MHz - 29.79 MHz) do actually have licensed business use as of 2020. The 25 MHz frequencies used for oil spill response as well as other land mobile purposes. The 25 MHz frequencies have frequency-specific regulations, including the permissive use of FSK tone signalling, impulse transmission for datalink or other purposes, with a maximum FSK datalink or signalling power output of 50 watts and a maximum of 3 minute bursts. These are allowed on a primary basis on 25.02 MHz, 25.06 MHz, 25.10 MHz and 25.18 MHz and on a secondary basis 25.14 MHz, 25.22 MHz, 25.26 MHz and 25.3 MHz.

The 27 MHz and 29 MHz frequencies are also used for land mobile and offshore ship-to-ship communications. These bands are shared with military/government allocations as well as the fixed/mobile bands and numerous other services in other countries.

While the FCC regulations do technically allow for business licenses on 27.555 MHz, 27.615 MHz, 27.635 MHz, 27.655 MHz, 27.765 MHz and 27.86 MHz in certain rural areas for forestry and logging communications (maximum power 150 watts), there are no active, expired or canceled licenses for any of these frequencies per the FCC database. The 27.41 MHz to 28.0 MHz band is still used by military and government stations, but the majority of signals heard there are from unlicensed CB freebanders or outbanders.

The 27.54 MHz - 28 MHz band is shared with military/government users per NTIA regulations. Any frequency between 30 MHz and 88 MHz may be used by the military and there are various sub-bands allocated to exclusive government used by the NITA that fall within 29.8 MHz - 49.9 MHz. The military and government have exclusive allocations for the 25.33 MHz to 25.55 MHz, 26.48 MHz to 26.95 MHz, 27.54 MHz to 28 MHz, 29.89 MHz to 29.91 MHz, 30 MHz to 30.56 MHz, 32 MHz to 33 MHz, 34 MHz to 35 MHz, 36 MHz to 37 MHz, 38.25 MHz to 39 MHz, 40 MHz to 42., 46.6 MHz to 47. MHz and 49.6 MHz to 50 MHz bands.

VHF Mid Band 72-76 MHz

Special purpose use only, adjacent channeled with 72/75 MHz remote control frequencies. Part FCC Part 90.35, 72-76 MHz is not used for traditional land mobile purposes like the other bands are.

Used for point-to-point links (voice and data), call boxes, telemetry, industrial control purposes, radio clock control, etc. The California Highway Patrol CHP hybrid VHF/UHF/700 MHz system uses 72 MHz and 75 MHz, as well as microwave systems, to link remote receiver sites for its VHF low band statewide land mobile network. Several other systems in various places nationwide operate similar systems using the mid band for linking remote sites and providing back-haul audio link capability. The 72 MHz frequencies are also heavily used for low power point-to-point data links, for example controlling a GPS-based clock system. These systems generally transmit in the 2-10 watt range and cover schools, college campuses, manufacturing sites, etc. The 74 MHz and 75 MHz frequencies may be used for industrial process control, telemetry and other specialized uses. Public safety users utilize these frequencies for back-haul purposes as described above as well as to control tornado sirens, for roadside emergency call boxes or other specialized purposes.

VHF High Band 150-174 MHz

There are several spots in the 150-156 MHz and 157.45-160.2 MHz bands where the 7.5 kHz channel steps are ignored or other band plans seem to have been "dropped in", resulting in odd channel steps and offsets (10 kHz channel steps, 3.75 kHz offset, etc.) This is most evident around 150.7 MHz / 150.8 MHz, 154 MHz and 157 MHz.

VHF 220 MHz Band 216-222 MHz

This portion actually consists of multiple services. The 217-218 MHz AMTS and land mobile radio service, the 218-219 MHz service (which is covered under Part 95 as a Personal Radio Service), the 219-220 MHz AMTS and land mobile radio service (shared with amateur radio) and the 220-222 MHz band covered under Part 90 as a land mobile service.

217-218 MHz band / 219-220 MHz band is allocated to the AMTS service on a primary basis. Amateur radio (1.25 meter band) has secondary prilivges on this band. The 217 MHz band may also be used for VHF trunking systems, including land mobile systems, inland from waterways to avoid interference to the marine AMTS system.

217-218 MHz trunking systems use 3.125 kHz offset / 6.25 kHz offset frequencies with 12.5 kHz channel steps. for example 217.63125 MHz, 217.91875 MHz, 217.78125 MHz, 217.70625 MHz, etc. Mobiles transmit 2 MHz higher (repeater inputs in the 219-220 MHz band, for example 219.63125 MHz, 219.91875 MHz, 219.78125 MHz, 219.70625 MHz, etc.). DMR and other digital narrow band modes are used.

47 CFR § 90.259 - Similar propagation characteristics to the VHF high band, used for trunking systems and other purposes nationwide. Standardized channel pairs, band plan and channel numbering per FCC rules. Not all frequencies are available for business users. Some frequencies are only available in certain areas. Paired systems use 1 MHz offset (mobiles transmit 1 MHz higher for repeater input).

5 kHz channels, 5 kHz steps, 2.5 kHz offset. 220.0025 MHz, 220.0075 MHz, 220.0125 MHz, 220.0175 MHz, 220.02225 MHz, up to 221.9925 MHz, 221.9975 MHz.

UHF Band 421-430 MHz

Note: This band is only used in certain areas - specifically in and near Detroit, MI, in and near Cleveland, OH and in and near Buffalo, NY. Frequencies fall within 420-450 MHz 70cm amateur radio allocation. In the areas listed, amateur radio use is not permitted below 430 MHz. The entire 420-450 MHz band is shared nationwide with military users and prohibitions exist in other areas. All operations (including mobiles) are limited to an 80km (50 mile) radius of the center locations as defined in FCC rules 90.273, 90.275, 90.279, 90.281, and 90.619. Public Safety users have additional sub-bands allocated (423.0000 MHz - 424.3875 MHz paired with 428.0000 MHz - 429.3875 MHz). 12.5 kHz channel steps. Repeater inputs +5 MHz split (same as the regular 450-470 MHz UHF band).


Detroit and Cleveland

  • 422.2000 MHz - 422.9875 MHz (input frequencies 427.2000 MHz - 427.9875 MHz) - simplex and duplex repeater pairs
  • 424.4000 MHz - 424.9875 MHz (input frequencies 429.4000 MHz - 429.9875 MHz) - simplex and duplex repeater pairs
  • 425.0000 MHz - 425.2375 MHz (simplex only)


Buffalo

  • 424.4000 MHz - 424.9875 MHz (input frequencies 429.4000 MHz - 429.9875 MHz) - simplex and duplex repeater pairs
  • 425.0000 MHz - 425.2375 MHz (simplex only)



Like the UHF-T (UHF-TV) band 470-512 MHz, the 421-430 MHz band was allocated to alleviate pressure in large metro areas where frequency congestion is a significant problem. Detroit, Cleveland and Buffalo are located near large Canadian cities. Frequency coordination with Canada is performed for license authorization in these areas.

UHF Band 450-470 MHz

The UHF band follows a standardized repeater pairing system. Mobiles transmit +5 MHz split. For example, a repeater operating on 451.375 MHz has a mobile input of 456.375 MHz. A repeater operating on 464.775 MHz has a mobile input of 469.775 MHz. The input frequencies can, and often are, used for simplex operations as well. 6.25 kHz offsets and 3.125 kHz offsets may be used. The 454 MHz band and 459 MHz band may be used for business purposes under Part 22 paging licenses in urban areas where frequency congestion is a serious issue. Analog FM as well as various digital voice modes and trunking systems may be used (for example, DMR, Motorola TRBO, NXDN trunking, IDAS, DMR Tier 3 trunking, etc). The same +5 MHz offset applies. For example, a mobile transmitting on 459.30625 MHz for a repeater output of 454.30625 MHz.

Under FCC rules Part 90.267, low-power 12.5 kHz and 6.25 kHz "splint" or "splinter" frequencies in the 450 MHz to 470 MHz band are broken down into different groups:

  • Group A1 - low side of frequency pair (451 MHz, 452 MHz, 462 MHz) - maximum 20 watts (base stations) - high side of pair, portables or mobiles: 6 watts. Only available within 80 km radius of larger metro areas. Low or high side may be used for simplex purposes, or frequencies may be paired for repeater purposes. The vast majority of these frequencies are used for simplex purposes only.
  • Group A2 - may be shared with non-voice users (for example, telemetry), low side of frequency pair (451 MHz, 452 MHz, 462 MHz) - maximum 20 watts (base stations) - high side of pair, portables or mobiles: 6 watts. Available nationwide. Maximum height for fixed stations is 75 feet above ground. Low or high side may be used for simplex purposes, or frequencies may be paired. The vast majority of these frequencies are used for simplex purposes only.
  • Group B - Group B frequencies are available for non-voice operations on a primary basis. Voice operations will be permitted on a secondary basis. Base, mobile or operational fixed stations will be authorized on Group B frequencies. Fixed stations may be licensed as mobile. Maximum height for fixed stations is 20 feet above ground. Base or fixed stations have a maximum power output of 6 watts. Portable or mobile stations have a maximum power output of 2 watts. The vast majority of these frequencies are used for simplex purposes only. These frequencies may be used for short-range data links, control systems for clocks, bells or other alarms in schools or on campuses, sprinkler systems at golf courses and numerous other datalink systems.
  • Group C - Group C frequencies are available for voice and non-voice operations on a co-primary basis. Only mobile operations will be authorized on Group C frequencies. Stations may operate at fixed locations for a temporary period of time. No stations operating at a permanent fixed location will be authorized on Group C frequencies. Maximum height for fixed stations is 20 feet above ground. Base or fixed stations have a maximum power output of 6 watts. Portable or mobile stations have a maximum power output of 2 watts. Group C low power frequencies are heavily used for simplex portable radios on job sites and for similar purposes. While the frequencies in group A1, A2 and B are also used for on-site voice radio walkie-talkie purposes, Group C is more frequently encountered.

  • Group D - Only available for central alarm signalling purposes in urban areas, except in rural areas where coordination is required. Operation on Group D frequencies is limited to 2 watts output power for mobile, base or operational fixed stations. Fixed stations used for central station alarm operations may utilize antennas mounted not more than 7 meters (20 feet) above a man-made supporting structure, including antenna structure.

Except for itinerant operations on Group C, wide area operations will not be authorized. The area of normal day-to-day operations will be described in the application in terms of maximum distance from a geographic center (latitude and longitude).

A hospital or health care institution holding a license to operate a radio station under this part may operate a medical radio telemetry device with an output power not to exceed 20 milliwatts 20mw 0.02 watts without specific authorization from the Commission. All licensees operating under this authority must comply with the requirements and limitations set forth in this section. The 6.25 kHz channels have more strict frequency stability and bandwidth limitations compared to the 12.5 kHz channels. The 6.25 kHz channels are generally only used in heavily urbanized areas where frequency congestion and interference are problematic.

UHF-T Band 470-512 MHz

Note: This band is only used in certain areas, and in those areas only certain sections of it are used. 470 MHz to 512 MHz is allocated to UHF TV channels 14-20. In larger urban areas, channels are "borrowed" and re-assigned to land mobile. The FCC has mandated that users vacate these frequencies in the near future as part of the transition to Digital Television (DTV) and the general push towards public safety use of the 700 MHz band. Like the 450-470 MHz band, UHF-T has a standardized split. Instead of 5 MHz, its 3 MHz. For example, a repeater operating on 470.6875 MHz has a mobile input frequency of 473.6875 MHz associated with it.

As of 2020, the 470-512 MHz band does not require use of 12.5 kHz channels narrow band modulation (NFM, DMR, NXDN, P25, etc) emissions. However, many cities where the UHF-T band is used suffer from extreme land mobile radio channel congestion. Therefore, they are forced to use narrow channels (12.5 kHz channels and 6.25 kHz channels) anyway.

A good example of this would be the FDNY Fire and EMS dispatch systems on the 482 MHz and 483 MHz band and their associated Motorola Type II trunking and Project 25 trunking systems that operate in the 482 MHz and 483 MHz region with the 6.25 kHz channel step. FDNY's fire dispatch system utilizes a half-duplex "split" frequency setup with base stations (dispatchers) transmitting on the low side and mobiles replying on the +3 MHz input mobile transmit frequency. They are not set up like a traditional repeater, however. FDNY fire dispatch frequencies 482.00625 MHz, 482.01875 MHz, 482.03125 MHz 482.04375 MHz 482.10625 MHz and 482.23125 MHz transmit narrow FM (12.5 kHz bandwidth) on the 6.25 kHz channels. The same is true for the FDNY EMS dispatch system, however the EMS dispatch system operates as a traditional simulcast repeater system.


In some areas, all public safety and a large amount of business radio operates in the 470-512 MHz T-band or TV-band. These cities (and their associated metropolitan areas) include: Boston, MA, Chicago, IL, Cleveland, OH, Dallas/Fort Worth, TX, Detroit, MI, Houston, TX, Los Angeles, CA, Miami, FL, New York, NY/N.E. New Jersey, Philadelphia, PA, San Francisco/Oakland, CA and the Washington-Baltimore metro area.

800 MHz/900 MHz band 809-940 MHz

Most of the systems in these bands are trunked. Analog FM 16 kHz or 15 kHz bandwidth (generally 13K6F3E or similar emission) as well as more modern digital voice/data systems including narrow band 12.5 kHz or 6.25 kHz channel bandwidth systems are in use.

Some on-site business systems use the 900 MHz band, including the Motorola DTR 900 MHz FHSS frequency hopping spread spectrum handheld radios, which operate at 1 watt ERP transmit power on the 902-928 MHz ISM band using frequency hopping digital voice. Current examples include the Motorola DTR600 and DTR700 radios. These radios operate with 50 kHz channel spacing and 8-level FSK digital FHSS. 902.525 MHz to 927.475 MHz coverage.

Common Itinerant and Low Power Business Frequencies

Can businesses use FRS radios? Yes they can under Part 95 of the FCC rules. Only the 5 MURS frequencies and the 22 FRS frequencies may be used without a license, however.


Often heard at construction sites, special events, shopping malls, stores, gas stations, etc. There is also movement in the hunting community away from CB/11 meter and VHF marine towards licensed Part 90 land mobile/business radio systems. See hunt club radio frequencies and American militia or patriot tactical frequencies.

These frequencies are often supplemented with heavy use of FRS frequencies. Use of all 22 FRS frequencies is permitted by businesses under the FCC rules.

Note the Motorola, Kenwood, Vertex, Baofeng, etc. on-site business radio default factory codes channels frequencies settings and available frequencies in a separate section below - these are not FRS/GMRS frequencies. Motorola FRS and GMRS radios use the standard 14 or 22 FRS channels.

The list below does not include the VHF low band itinerants: 27.490 MHz, 35.040 MHz and 43.040 MHz. While these frequencies are used, often in conjunction with other VHF low band frequencies, they are rarely, if ever, used for on-site communications with portable radios. Business radio systems and land mobile systems in general below 50 MHz do not need to narrow band their equipment and continue running wide band FM 25 kHz channels (20K0F3E emission or 16K0F3E emission). High power is authorized on the 27.49 MHz, 35.04 MHz and 43.04 MHz frequencies.

All Part 90 frequencies above 150 MHz must operate in narrow band mode or use digital voice modes that meet the FCC narrowbanding requirement.

  • Narrow band FM voice emissions include 11K2F3E (sometimes listed on licenses as 11K3F3E or 11K0F3E), 10K0F3E, 9K20F3E, 9K10F3E and 6K00F3E.
  • Narrow FM voice/data (11K3F3E, 11K2F3E, 11K0F3E, 9K20F3E, 11K3F3D, 11K3F2D, 11K3F1D, 11K2F9W, etc.), DMR (7K60FXE, 7K60FXW, 7K60F7W, etc), IDAS or NXDN NEXEDGE (4K00F1E, 8K30F1E, 8K30F7W, etc.) and Project 25 P25 (8K10F1E) are the most common.

Do I need a license to transmit on 151.625 MHz? Yes, you do. You need a license to use all the business band frequencies, including 151.625 MHz, 151.505 MHz, 158.400 MHz, 151.955 MHz, 151.700 MHz, 151.760 MHz, 464.550 MHz, 464.500 MHz, 467.925 MHz, 467.875 MHz, 467.900 MHz, etc. Only the 22 FRS frequencies, the 5 MURS frequencies and the 40 CB channels do not require a license. Getting a business license for the Itinerant channels is extremely easy.

Most of the transmissions you'll hear on these frequencies are from portable handheld radios - walkie-talkies, but sometimes high powered mobile radios or even portable repeaters are heard. Portable or temporary repeater output frequencies may be any of the VHF low or VHF high frequencies. On the UHF band, input frequency is 5 MHz above output frequency. In many situations all frequencies are used for simplex only. The 457 MHz, 462 MHz and 467 MHz frequencies are simplex use only and are often used for on-site communications using portable handheld radios. Several of the itinerant frequencies may be used as repeater output channels, repeater input channels or for simplex/talk-around purposes. Examples include the 464.500 MHz, 464.550 MHz and 469.500 MHz, 469.550 MHz frequencies. 464.550 MHz may be used as a repeater output (paired with 469.550 MHz) or both frequencies may be used for simplex purposes. The 457/467 MHz frequencies are also used by shipboard and dockside repeaters or simplex systems aboard ship (10 MHz offset or 10.225 MHz offset). The itinerant frequencies in the VHF bands do not have a set pairing or offset like the UHF bands do.

The default channels / frequencies for most job site / contractor / construction site crews will vary. Many crews use FRS, MURS or CB for on-site communications, especially if multiple contractors and subcontractors are working together on a large site. The default out of the box factory UHF channels are also often heavily used.

See the factory portable radio frequencies and available frequencies listed in the section below.


Recommended Common Itinerant On-Site Business Radio Frequencies Tones Codes List

Basically the opposite of the commonly used tones/codes list - intended as guidance for somebody programming radios for a work crew, special event, radio rental, custom programming Baofeng BF-888S, UV-5R, UV-82, Retevis radios, or similar field-programmable radios. See sister section on the FRS page.

  • On Baofeng radios, CTCSS (PL) is set under the R-CTCS and T-CTCS settings (both should be the same for transmit and receive tone squelch). Programming a CTCSS code for transmit only will leave the radio in carrier squelch receive (CSQ) mode, and all signals on a given channel will be heard. For all radios to talk to each other and reduce interference effectively, the R-CTCS and T-CTCS codes must match exactly. For example, if programming radios to use CTCSS tone 123.0 Hz, all radios must have their T-CTCS and R-CTCS set to 123.0HZ.
  • On Baofeng radios, DCS (DPL) is set under the R-DCS and T-DCS settings (both should be the same for transmit and receive code squelch). Programming a DCS code for transmit only will leave the radio in carrier squelch receive (CSQ) mode, and all signals on a given channel will be heard. For all radios to talk to each other and reduce interference effectively, the R-DCS and T-DCS codes must match exactly. For example, if programming radios to use DCS code 243, all radios must have their T-DCS set to D243N and their R-DCS set to D243N. Use of inverted DCS tones is not recommended. D243I is not the same as D243N.
  • It is possible to alternate between DCS and CTCSS from one channel to another, but this can quickly become complicated if programming a fleet of radios. For this reason, it is recommended that you stick with one code or tone, or a set of 2-3 codes/tones for an entire channel plan.

Motorola Code (CTCSS tone and DCS code, aka PL tone and DPL code, channel guard, tone, subcode, subtone, sub-channel, privacy code, etc.) list:

Note: there are other non-standard CTCSS (PL) tones available, including 69.3 Hz PL (69.4 Hz PL in some radios), 159.8 Hz PL, 165.5 Hz PL, 171.3 Hz PL, 177.3 Hz PL, 183.5 Hz PL, 189.9 Hz PL, 196.6 Hz PL, 199.5 Hz PL, 206.5 Hz PL, 229.1 Hz PL and 254.1 Hz PL. The military standard 30-88 MHz VHF FM (SINCGARS) tone of 150 Hz is usually not included in land mobile equipment, but scanners will usually decode 150.0 Hz as 151.4 Hz and some radios will allow the two to be interchanged.

There are also numerous additional non-standard DCS or DPL codes available

At stores using 467.750 MHz for channel 1 located in shopping centers with restaurants, interference from Long Range Systems coaster pagers (which also operate on 467.75 MHz) has been noted. 467.925 MHz, 467.8 MHz, 467.85 MHz and 467.875 MHz are used by numerous other stores, causing a monitoring headache for somebody with a scanner.
