The Land Mobile Radio (LMR) Subcommittee of the Interoperability Council develops, manages, and maintains policies, plans, and documents to foster radio communications interoperability between all public safety agencies. The Subcommittee is made up of state and local communications officials from around the state.

In the 70’s, 80’s, and 90’s, the National Law Enforcement Emergency Channel 155.475 MHz, known as WISPERN in Wisconsin, was managed by the Wisconsin Police Emergency Radio Network Board. With the advent of the Mutual Aid Radio Channels (MARC), Mutual Aid Box Alarm System (MABAS) communications plans, and national interoperability channels, the Mutual Aid Frequency Coordination Group (MFCG) was formed to develop and manage these resources. Those responsibilities are now within the LMR Subcommittee.

The rules and responsibilities of the LMR Subcommittee can be found in the Interoperability Council Subcommittee Bylaws.
