Nationwide Public Safety Interoperability Channels

See: APCO/NPSTC ANS 1.104.1-2010 Standard Channel Nomenclature for the Public Safety Interoperability Channels and USDHS National Interoperability Field Operations Guide

Some states, regional and local areas have their own interoperability or mutual aid channels or trunked system talkgroups which are used instead of, or in addition to, those listed below.

In some areas the channels listed below may have different channel names, tones, etc. or be used for different purposes.

  • State and regional frequencies are usually found on the Common/Shared or Statewide drop-down list on the main RadioReference Database page for each state.
  • Interoperability channel plans are often published on various state government web sites. See links at the bottom of this page.
  • In analog mode all end user radios should transmit PL 156.7 (136.5 for high band temporary repeaters, 167.9 for NITA channels) and receive CSQ (carrier squelch) unless PL decode is necessary due to interference.
  • In APCO P25 dgital mode all radios should use NAC $293 (NAC $68F for NTIA channels).
