In this article, the author reflects on 800 megahertz (MHz) rebanding or very-high frequency (VHF)/ultra-high frequency (UHF) narrowbanding in the U.S. He relates that there is a shift from single-municipality public-safety radio systems to wide-area, single-licensee systems due to the rebanding. He believes that this would accomplish interoperability in public-safety communications. He cautions that having a large regional communications system could mean that priorities may differ from one area to another.
