Hawaii Police Department Frequencies

Introduction

Although the Hawaii Police Department is on a conventional VHF radio system, multiple frequencies cover one patrol district in various areas makes the system a bit complicated to monitor.  You have to know what area you're in, and then pick the closest repeater that corresponds to your district, and then determine if it's a primary or secondary frequency for that area.  A primary frequency is the frequency used in the center in town.  A secondary frequency is used to communicate in another part of town in the same district.  Theoretically speaking, it would have made more sense if multiple repeater sites used the same frequency, and then key up the transmitter for that particular site -- this is what Honolulu police used to do when they had their VHF radio system, Hawaii police doesn't.
