Radio Frequencies

Week Two Assignment / Look up the frequencies in a geographic location of your choice.

I decided to look up the radio frequencies around Waikiki Beach (HI, 96815) that I went to during the Winter recess. It turns out that there’s not many different frequencies in Honolulu County so that I had to look at the Education section in the result. More specifically, different campuses of University of Hawaii. However, another problem occurred that licenses of frequencies in both Honolulu Community College (WOFH280) and Kapiolani Community College (WQVC487) are not well documented in the system and I failed to retrieve the information for them. At last, I found ones for the rest three campuses:

Frequency License Type Tone Alpha Tag Description
Leeward Community College 453.62500 KNEK518 RM LCC Security Leeward Community College - Security Operations [Encrypted]
Manoa 858.36250 WNUR273 RM 001 NAC DIGI RPT Security
