Next week (07/27/2003) i will be attending a Global Young Leaders Conference in Washington D.C. and New York.  I really don't know how much time I'll have to be on the bands (I have a dual-band Yaesu VX-1R)in the area, but I don't go anywhere without the radio.  I seem to remember reading somewhere about certain frequency restrictions on the 2m/70cm bands in the Metro Washington area.  Is this true, and if so, what are they and where can I find them.  Also, I'll be staying at Mount Vernon College in Washingon.  Is there an open repeater near there thats pretty active?  Thanks for the info!

I don't know of any special restictions in Washington, D.C.  You may be thinking about the FCC monitoring station in Laural, Maryland. Part 97 does require you to protect them from harmfull interferrence if you are located within 1 mile of the station. I don't think you'll need to be concerned with an HT.
