Remember: talkaround is a unit-to-unit low power simplex mode, which does not go through the trunked repeater system. Therefore, you may want to use your scanner's software to program these three frequencies into their own channel bank, with each channel being selected as a "FM" type channel, and with the bank set as a "conventional" bank via the selection at the top of the programming screen.
IN ADDITION TO THE THREE FREQUENCIES LISTED ABOVE, IT HAS BEEN NOTED THAT THE FOLLOWING FREQUENCIES ARE LICENSED FOR MOBILE OPERATION IN THE NEW SYSTEM. THOUGH NOTHING HAS BEEN HEARD ON THESE FREQUENCIES YET, THIS WOULD SEEM TO INDICATE THAT THEY MAY BE USED AS TALKAROUNDS FOR INDIVIDUAL DEPARTMENTS OR AGENCIES, PARTICULARLY COUNTY AGENCIES, IN THE FUTURE:
