Die Hard - not seen, but wouldn't the dispatchers ask that street cop to work Channel 9 on his CB - as Mc Clane had initially raised them on that freq?
The radio Mc Clain had was a Kenwood 2 meter ham talkie...not a CB or cop radio...Cops in LA have been on 800MHz for some time....about the time the movie came out..
Massive natter cut, but probably interesting/relevant enough to be saved here:
Picture to this topic that shows up is from the movie "Contact"...'Ellie' is a ham, not a C Ber (which means she passed a 13 word per minute code test at the time!) and only ran 100watts out of the radio on 20m SSB though the movie made it sound like AM ('Frequency' made it sound right in the beginning but then later had it full duplex and FM like!! and the radio used in THAT movie was a Heathkit SB 301...RECEIVER! Opps!)

How well does it match the trope?
