    Actually, most 150 & 450 MHz systems are no longer in use, as most
    infrastructure & device manufacturers have dedicated their frail & limited
    resources in the 900 MHz band where all the middle/upper-tier carriers have
    moved to. Substantially all POCSAG, FLEX, and ReFLEX systems in use today
    in the US are operating between 929-932 MHz. It is cellular & SMR that
    occupies in the 800 MHz band, with PCS at 1900 MHz.

    Your overall point is correct, but I wanted to make sure the facts were
    presented as accurately as possible.
