Militia Radio

Whether the presence of militias make you feel patriotic or remind you of Isis, you should know there are non-governmental paramilitary groups in all 50-states. Membership is estimated at between 20,000 and 60,000. You may not have seen them, but they are there. More here.

Not only are they there, but they are really into walkie-talkies. As it turns out, there are websites that track this sort of thing. The Militia radio band of choice is MURS Channel 3 ( 151.9400 MHz FM simplex ). The reason is probably because MURS is the longest range VHF radio service that can be used without the need for a radio license. Anything better would require getting a license from the man... and you knwo how they feel about the man.

Below is a more specific list of channels. You might want to try a band scan ans see what you can hear in your own neighborhood. Posse Comitatus could be practicing marching drills in your local park.
