Title: Beginner - What bands do I want?
Post by: PGPILOT on August 29, 2002, 11:51:25 AM
Hi everyone!

This should be an easy one - I'm a paraglider pilot, so I want the 2M band, and my brother races cars (he's the crazy one) I guess his crew uses the 70cm band, so I want that one too.  So I'm trying to decide betweeen the TH-F6A or the TH-F7E.  My question is:  what's on the 1.5m band?  Seems like I see a lot of posts from guys who say, "I don't do much in that band."

Thanks for your help!
Sam

There's considerable FM activity in the 135cm (222 MHz) band, both simplex and repeaters, but whether the band gets much use depends on where you live.

Here in the L.A. area, it's popular and is the backbone of some very wide area amateur repeater networks.
