N.B. 16K0F3EJN is the International Telecommunication Union's (ITU) emission designation for current analogue fireground equipment operating in 25 kHz bandwidth.

For more information on the correct channel programming of duplex channels see Fixed site and portable repeaters.

So that services could be rearranged in the future, any equipment procured must be capable of transmitting and receiving on any frequency in the 450-470MHz band, and capable of transmitting and receiving channels with a bandwidth of 12.5 kHz.

The channel plans below suggest primary uses for the Ofcom allocated frequencies that will support interoperability at cross-border incidents and national deployments. Incident commanders should consider a communication plan appropriate to the incident, see also Fireground considerations.
