I'll be driving about 6 hours to Dayton. I was wondering if there is any established frequency to speak to others on the road heading to and from the Hamfest.  I know there are repeaters in the area.  Is that the best way?  Just change from repeater to repeater?  Seems nobody will take the time to look those up and punch them in while on the road.
Just wondering.

Thanks.

I go out with 2 or 3 other guys.  2 years ago, we took my Tahoe.  I have 10m, 6m, 2m, and 70cm, and HF installed.  On the way out, we were too busy yacking to each other to use the radios, and on the way home, we're all sort of poached from all of the RF exposure from the 3 days and the radios actually stay off most of the time.  Most of the time,, we just throw a hand up at any passing cars with antennas. We also do I-70 from western PA.  That is one boring highway.

Yes it is. I'll be doing I-70 from St. Louis to Dayton.  Maybe I'll put a sign in my back window with 146.52 on it.  Grin

For FM the calling frequencies in MHz are:

10m = 29.6
6m = 52.525
2m = 146.52
1.23cm = 223.5
70cm = 446.0

If anyone will be in the Bedford IN area you're free to use my EchoLink node 145.72 simplex PL 136.5 or the Hoosier Hills Ham Club's 2m repeater W9QYQ at 146.73 - offset PL 107.2
