If you have APRS you can look for me (A C zero V H dash 9). I append the freq/tone/shift set on the main band (what I use as the main voice side) into #1 optional text field when it beacons. It should look like a comment on my position.

I usually ragchew during my commutes on 449.450, -5MHz, 103.5Hz. There is a regular crew.

Often there are also hams chatting on 145.310, 145.145, 145.460/147.225 or 449.350 most commutes. Just jump in, introduce yourself, most of them don't bite. Be aware though that every dang one of them WILL talk your ears off. :-)
