I've asked before with no answer from the group. Did we ever settle on a national UHF frequency for APRS? I have considered putting some UHF radios on APRS here.

The several db disadvantage on UHF is actually an advantage for APRS.

It makes it more "cellular" so there are less collisions.

An additional benefit is we can listen to the VHF channels without

having them blocked by the APRS packets.
