Utility Radio

Utility radio frequencies are basically everything except amateur and commercial broadcast transmissions. This can include police, fire & medical; municipal (road crews, public transit, etc.), hospitals, universities, private security, aircraft, maritime, businesses (tow trucks, gas/electric, etc.), military, federal agencies…the list is very long! If you are a survivalist/prepper, a radio hobbyist, or just a concerned citizen, listening to these organizations’ chatter can provide great insight into what is going on in your locale.
