That makes more sense, I have the FERN channels in my radios, so I seem to be wrong remembering those. Is there even a Ferndale, CA?
Just looked at my VX7, it has the alphanumerics of (FERN) as 154.280, (FERN2) as 154.265, (FERN3) as 154.295. Those are obviously not amateur frequencies, but public service.
