The 146.52 Club

About This Club

What if 146.52 MHz became a very active national travel frequency? Would that be helpful? Would that be fun? Would that keep us company on long drives? The truth is that, unlike CBers, amateur radio operators do not really use their radios extensively while on the nation's highways.
  1. What's new in this club
  2. Part of what we are hoping to accomplish with 146.52 is to some day show that there is a critical mass of us who are committed to making 146.52 MHz a highly-used travel frequency. Sign the pledge here: https://hamcommunity.com/forms/5-14652pledge/
  3. As per a contest rule change by the ARRL, 146.52 is now authorized for contesting. What if I need to call out an emergency and the channel is full of users. Sure, I can call a break-break-break, but only if there isn't a pile-up. Regardless, it's the principle. Clearly, the ARRL does not see 146.52 as a public service frequency that should be prioritized for: Calling out for an emergency Calling out for simplex listeners before QSY to another frequency Or, as we propose to use it, as an on-road travel frequency with the understanding that we should keep our transmissions shorter rather than longer and leave breaks in between to allow for emergency traffic.
