Default Standard Simplex Ham Frequencies

We are going to adopt a set of frequencies for standard use on trips. Here they are:

4WD 1 -- 146.430
4WD 2 -- 146.460
4WD 3 -- 146.490
4WD 4 -- 146.580
4WD 5 -- 147.420
4WD 6 -- 147.450
4WD 7 -- 147.480
4WD 8 -- 147.540
4WD 9 -- 147.570


If we get too much interference on runs in busy areas we can just use CTCSS.

So go ahead and program these into your radios!

Makes sense for SoCal I suppose, but for the rest of the country those frequencies are fine. I've seen them published far and wide and well beyond the reach of just this board.

Most of the time we use 146.460 and maybe 146.430. Not had too much issue with it. And very little traffic when I drive and just monitor. 146.460 is pretty much the standard we use for runs.

I have had traffic on 146.520 a lot of times, but that is pretty much a very general simplex frequency.

which makes sense as 146.52 is the universally accepted standard simplex "call" frequency for 2M. Most places there's a gentleman's agreement that you make your initial call for someone on 146.52 then QSY to another frequency for the chat.

I usually tune to it when on the highway and out of range of the repeaters I know of. In my region, there are a couple of guys in a multi-county area that use ~100W and a 2M beam antenna at their QTH's to chat. They've always been happy to let others jump in on their conversation. I glanced at the central texas area as well and saw a little overlap, but nothing worse than the socal area.

In general, most of the emergency groups I've been involved with, put this sort of frequency info onto a business card-sized paper that they then laminate and hand out. This has served me well through the years. I just pull out my wallet and pick the right frequency based on location/traffic. Maybe that tidbit/wallet idea is useful?

First I've ever heard of a simplex "channel 19". I'll be sure to add it to my list of frequencies to scan from now on.
