Emergency Centre of Activity Frequencies

GLOBAL FREQUENCIES

These frequencies have been adopted into the bandplans of each IARU region to be a focus for emergency communications in their areas. They are not 'absolute' frequencies but instead are 'centres of activity' and emergency communications may be found ±20kHz from these centres. Some countries may maintain other emergency frequencies in their own bandplans due to local requirements, QRM etc.

Region 1 Region 2 Region 3
3760 3750 or 3985 3600
7110 7060, 7240 or 7275 7110
14300 14300 14300
18160 18160 18160
21360 21360 21360

REGION 1 VHF/UHF FREQUENCIES


There are no common frequencies for emergency communications in the VHF/UHF spectrum however the bands are heavily used for local communications by national emergency groups. The countries below have allowed information on their VHF/UHF frequency usage to be published and this information was also requested by the C5 committee at the IARU Region 1 conference in Sun City 2011 so that it may be taken into account during bandplanning discussions.
