Wisconsin Utility Companies

Alliant Energy

(Aka - "Wisconsin Power & Light Company)
They operate mostly on a number of 800MHz frequencies that are licensed throughout the state. They are licensed as "Wisconsin Power and Light Company"). It uses "iDEN" technology (Similar to Nextel Radio/Phones) so it is not monitorable with any radio currently on the market.

++ In the Milwaukee area, the UHF frequencies have been silent and it appears like they have switched to a 900MHz "MotoTRBO Connect Plus" Trunked Radio System. Unfortunately, this type of system is not able to be monitored with todays scanners. The frequencies in the Milwaukee area are 936.4000, 937.450 and 937.4750. I am guessing this is going to be a statewide type thing. Hopefully I will get more information on this system.
