huh. The best use of those frequencies really is in the forest.
2 Watts FM can get you a mile in the wood. good reason most military rigs cover 30-70.

You must be careful in the forest.

With every cellphone carrier and every 3, 4, and 5th Generation planner trying to get their hands on UHF and SHF bandwidth, I think any part of the spectrum we can gain is a step in the right direction.

There are a fair number of no-longer-current transceivers out there, ready to be put to work on an "8 meter" band. It's good training for future commercial techs, and a chance for hams to get inexpensive gear.

My 2¢. YMMV.
