I-LEAD uses NXDN Part 90 Land Mobile Radio service, " a.k.a. business band", type radios on a digital voice format using Amateur Radio Frequencies. To use the system, you must have an NXDN digital radio. Icom, Kenwood, and others make NXDN radios that will work on the system.
Currently, there are 2 repeaters on line in the I-LEAD system. There are dozens of NXDN capable repeaters all over the world. We may decide to link into this world-wide network later on.
