For 2011, the Peoria Chiefs are using new Kenwood radios. Three frequencies, listed above, have been identified. 469.5000 was the busiest frequency in between innings and for general gameday operations. 469.2625 was used sparingly for administrative purposes. 467.9125 was used sparingly, possibly by promotions staff (if they aren't mostly on 469.5000).

It'd be worth scanning the itinerant frequencies to see if other frequencies are in use, as the three above were heard at a sparsely attended game.
Nothing was heard on their former frequencies 451.1250 and 467.9000. Also, nothing was confirmed on 461.825 related to the game, but there could have been related traffic prior my arriving in the 2nd inning.

OLD INFO:
Misc. Peoria Chiefs notes:

  • Stadium operations are on 451.125 while the "cheerleader" staff uses 467.900 to coordinate their entertaining of the crowd. In the first few seasons, FRS was used at the stadium years ago but hasn't been observed recently. Parking lots are run by National Garages are using 461.825 DCS654 250.3 PL. AMT personnel at the games were observed carrying an 800 MHz portable, presumably on the Supreme 800 MHz MOT TRS. Peoria PD officers are occasionally seen at the games.
