Hi Guys,
My name is Dan and I just got my Tech ticket a few weeks ago, KC3DAG. I live in Butler PA and have a boat load of anchors. I might need some help getting my 6N2 Johnson up and running. Looking for some AM friends.
Happy 4th

I was thinking of using 145.62, since my HW-17 is somewhat crystal & 145.62/18=8.09. Also, because it looks like the FM calling frequency of 146.52. Here, in NESMC territory, it sits between 2 FM simplex/packet frequencies (packet was displaced from 144.9-145 for more repeaters, mostly DMR).

An alternate frequency Iíve considered is 144.9.

I am compiled a list of potential frequencies for 2 meter AM based on feedback from this forum and old posts on other sites.  I also hope to make some 2 meter AM contacts; however, given the overall lack of interest in 6 meter AM, I am not sure how successful our efforts will be!  I can count on my two hands the number of  6 meter AM contacts I have made over the past two years and it is certainly not from trying or a poor setup!  Embarrassed

2 Meters:

144.247
144.250
144.260
144.265
144.28 (NYC-Long Island)
144.350
144.4 (Northwest)
144.425 (Massachusetts)
144.45 (California)
145.50
145.65

Here's the ARRL list, from http://www.arrl.org/am-frequencies

2 Meters:

144.4 (Northwest)
144.425 (Massachusetts)
144.28 (NYC-Long Island)
144.45 (California)

But of course I stand by my original statement from years ago: 145.8 should be sacrosanct!

LOL. We're getting circular here. Those "ARRL" frees came from me.
