Is there any 6m APRS activity in Europe? If there is, what frequency
are you using?

The common AX.25 packet frequency was 50.650, I wonder if there are
any nodes left?

It would be nice to experiment with 6m packet. What frequency should
be used? 50.650 or something +/- n*20 kHz off? I suppose most radios
here are programmable, not crystal control, so the choice is more or
less free.
