The National Public Safety Channels are used also. These are used for on scene communications and local communications were repeaters are on the air.  These 800 Mhz conventional systems use a CTCSS of 156.7 hz.  Originally assigned by the FCC to use as mutual aid between different agencies anywhere by any eligible 800 mhz Public Safety agency.  These were named the NPS or NPSPAC Channels back in the late 1980's.  Most recently they have been given the acronym 8CALL and 8TAC Channels (Interoperability Tactical Channels). Some agencies have adopted the standard names below on these channels.  All five frequencies have 5 repeater pairs and 5 talkaround/simplex channels.  Presently we use the old NPS Channels and the new configuration.  Under the new NEXTEL rebanding the frequencies will change and be 15 mhz down from present NPSPAC and the NPS channels will dissolve after rebanding is complete.
