i have never had a 220 radio.. aside from HF, im mostly 2 meters, and a day or so a month on 70cm.. what is going on with 220.. i understand the way the signal travels, so i would guess its not as good as 2m simplex, but probably better than 70cm? line of sight.... is there REALLY anyone who talks on this band simplex or packet? just looking for any info....
220MHz is the reason I'm looking at the TH-F6A for a new HT - we have a few repeaters in the area, and from the people I've talked to about it the coverage seems good.
If you're into VHF contesting, it's more points
I had heard that 1.2GHz had pockets of FM repeater activity in FL, maybe look into that? That's a band that's completely dead in my local area.
