IFF I understand your question - - -

I think Ch. 19.5 - 27.195, iirc designated for rc work - might be a good choice. Also Ch. 11.5 - 27.095. Catch you on the flip,

Here is an idea.  Radio Shak was the #1 seller and supporter of CB radios.  But as they close down, there remains a few BILLION dollars worth of 27 MHz spectrum sitting on the table.

Why not come up with a proposal for the FCC to give it back to HAMS?  What for?  That is the BIG question.  Its wavelength is IDEAL for mobile operation.  And HAMS love making use of old radios.

I do not want this to smack of self-interest, but APRS seems like a pretty good use of a channel.  And it does not involve speakers having to listen to foul language..

So what is the KILLER APP for 11 Meters?

How do we make it happen?

Does anyone know of any "under used channel" for experimentation?  Who would like to get an STA from the FCC to "experiment?
