In the 2002 movie "The Bourne Identity" some radio controlling software is used. Does anyone know if that was an actual commercial radio controlling software? If so, what is it? See attached photo from movie:

Good question and here is (hopefully) another one.

Is it just me, or does the frequency display show hundreds of milli-Hz?

"0421.5634766MHz"

In Hollywood, that last 600 milli-Hertz is essential!  ha ha

My SDR-IQ shows tenths of Hertz. Think most SDRs do, with FFT bins of 48 Hz or less.

Wow -

Perhaps I'm showing my age. I used to be happy to reliably find +- 5 KHz.


Thanks for the heads-up.

There is no current 421 area code for North America (+1) telephone system.

However, the country code for Slovakia is 421.
Part of the movie, The Bourne Identity was filmed in Czech Republic.

Was this the phone number for pizza delivery?

The 421 MHZ frequency is part of our 70cm band.  I wonder if other nations have the same frequency allocations?

Randy -

421 MHz is allocated to amateur radio (often as secondary) only in Regions 2 and 3,
and then often with restrictions (military - such as White Sands, Canada/US "A" Line, etc.)
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ITU_region

In Region 1, primary locations of the movie's storyline, is not allocated for amateur radio.
Usage by law enforcement or first responders believable, Police Urbaine in movie.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/70-centimeter_band

In addition, in the USA -- frequency spectrum between 421 MHz and 430 MHz IS available for commercial two-way radio use in the Detroit, Michigan; Cleveland, Ohio; and the Buffalo, New York areas.
These locations are located within the "A" line of USA, south of the Canadian border
This is per 47 CFR Part 90 Section 90.273.
