Default Please keep it inside the bands...

Guys/Gals,

Please keep in mind that the FCC says very specifically where you can and cannot go with your privileges. If you can't get help in an emergency with the HAM equipment using your license privileges, the odds of getting someone on the Air Traffic frequencies is even less likely.

6M is 50-54 MhZ and 2M is 144-148 MhZ.

It is extremely poor form to try to operate on frequencies outside the ones granted to us as HAMs by the FCC, not to mention that doing so is illegal. Safety is the primary concern for this.

Let's perfect using our privileges first.
