Bingo.

It's the same reason none of the :ham: companies make 33cm (902-928 MHz) gear. It's a USA-only band.

I forgot to mention another bit of amusement. KC8UTI and I were using a simplex freq with IMBE. It turns out, we were sharing the frequency with some hammies using CSQ analog, from what I heard with mixed mode. You would think we could share a freqency and get along, right? Nope. They kept complaini...

15 lookers, but no talkers.

A HamSexy meetup at a place of food and/or drink could happen, too, if demand is present.

Toledo Hamfest March 18th 2007

OK, who else will be there. I'm trying to nudge a local hamsexual to come along, but we'll see.

I've already requested the day off at work, so I'm going.

It looks like a big hamfest, from the pictures on their website.

KC8RYW simplex node 4018 is up! Try calling me!

I have the computer setup. It wasn't hard at all. Now, all I need to run a line from the busy LED on the front to drive the COS. I found the transistor I need to take it from, but I need to work up the courage to deal with soldering into SMD. Motorola wasn't cool enough to add I/O to the GTX mobile....

But I don't see it happening anytime soon. There isn't an Echolink or IRLP node for 50 miles. We still have repeaters running CSQ. qrzmoderator
