    Is it possible to put a radio in your car and have your own private frequency or channel?

    No. The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) regulates interstate and international communications by radio, television, wire, satellite and cable.

    You can't have your own private frequency! :)

    You can get access to "more or less private" frequencies via GMRS licenses, etc. Best to visit the fcc.gov website to learn more.

    No, You cannot have your own PRIVATE Frequency. In years back,you could have a module added to your transmitter for "your company". That way you only recieve traffic from transmissions that have the same module.
    {different type system} "Scramblers" are used in the Military--not sure if they are legal for general public--you can check. Probably BIG $$$$$.
    Cell phone is easiest.
    Another place to check--Amature radio clubs or amature radio info.
    "HAM clubs"
