It sounds like they want to try and bring back 49 Mhz as a way of communications such as emergency. Bringing back the 49 Mhz Walkie Talkie’s is an interesting concept. But I do remember 49.830, 49.860 and 49.890 were very popular amung kids Walkie Talkie’s and other 49 Mhz Walkie Talkie’s back around 1979. The range was 1/4 to 1 mile. But the band was quiet for the most part. I suppose you could modify 2 49 Mhz Walkie talkie’s one for the left channel and the other for the right. One could be on 49.830 and the other could be on 49.890 Mhz. These could be used to link many FM Transmitters so you could cover an entire neighborhood. An expensive way, but could have been done in a small neighborhood.
