This week’s assignment was to use the Radio Reference and investigate the frequencies used in a geographic location. I picked the Las Vegas metro area because it’s hotspot for tourism/hospitality and the location of one of the largest colocation data centers in America.
Some example frequency licenses and their uses:
There is also a list of trunked radio systems which are the ”computer-controlled” radio systems in use in the area. An interesting Las Vegas trunked system is the Bellagio Hotel and Casino operating on a primary control channel frequency of ~937 MHz with sub talkgroups allocated to hotel security, housekeeping, casino operations, and more.
A perpetual work in progress blog documentating my NYU ITP projects. Words are my own.
