Washington Hospital Center Adds Frequency, DMR Codes

Washington Hospital Center has an application pending to its license to add a frequency (463.5625, a repeater, coded for DMR) and to add DMR emissions codes to the existing frequencies.

The hospital also has an application to another license to add DMR emissions codes to the repeater on 461.7000.

The hospital uses an LTR trunked system for primary communications. There is nothing on the license for that system to indicate pending changes.
