The meter band is a portion of the shortwave radio spectrum internationally allocated to amateur radio and amateur satellite use on a primary basis. The band consists of frequencies stretching from The meter band was allocated on a worldwide basis by the International Radiotelegraph Conference in Washington, D. In the late s, the impending ban by the FCC of the sale of older channel CB equipment that did not meet more stringent restrictions on newer, channel units, meant that a surplus of channel CB gear was on the market. This was a windfall for amateur radio enthusiasts, allowing access to fairly inexpensive radios which could easily be modified for use in the meter band.

Mount Bullion is located a few miles out of Mariposa. Repeaters: Remote Bases: These receivers act as cross band repeaters between All of these receivers are bi-directional meaning you can transmit into them on either 2 Meters or except for Turlock.
In view of the fact that repeaters can become busy, it is necessary to use them in a way which gives others access when they need it. There are a few points that are worth noting so that the best experience can be gained from using an amateur radio repeater. Knowing how to use an amateur radio repeater is often very simple and straightforward.
A story that has been on the burner for a few weeks concerns a proposal that will be advanced to the ITU World Radiocommunication Conference It originates with French spectrum regulators and is reported to be at the behest of the Paris-based multinational defence contractor Thales. The sting in its tail is the proposed relegation of amateur radio to secondary status of the widely used two-meter band MHz to permit its usage by aircraft. The machinations of global spectrum regulation politics do not often provide stories for Hackaday readers, but this one should be of concern beyond the narrow bounds of amateur radio. Most parts of the radio spectrum are shared between more than one user, and there is usually a primary occupant and a secondary one whose usage is dependent upon not interfering with other users.
