Is anyone going to run digital on 2m or 6m during field day? I would like to work a little PSK31 or JT65!

I'll be running the digital station for our club (K4TLH) and plan on at least HF & 6. Maybe I'll drag the 746pro at the FD site and that way I can run 2m digital.

I'll be just south of you working as KB4KY, I'd love to try some PSK over 2m SSB. Another digital mode I've been wanting to try is MT63-2000 over 2m FM. Let me know a time and frequency and I'll swing the beam your direction.

This bandplan may help (thanks KB9UMT and the PSK_VHF-UHF_Hamradio group on Yahoogroups:
6 Meters CW/SSB/Digital
50.060-50.080 CW Beacons (unattended sub-band)
50.080-50.100 CW QSO's
50.100-50.125 DX Window
50.110 DX Calling Frequency
50.125 North American SSB Calling Frequency
50.133-50.430 Voice Nets see: <http://6mt.com/nets.htm>
50.255 FSK441 lower practical limit for most QSO's
50.260 FSK441 Calling Frequency
50.285 FSK441 upper practical limit for most QSO's
50.290 SSB PSK31
50.291 PropNET http://www.PropNET.org (with +1500hz PSK audio)
50.300 or 50.700 RTTY?
50.620 Packet Calling Frequency
2 Meters CW/SSB/Digital
144.00-144.05 EME (CW)
144.05-144.06 Propagation beacons (old band plan)
144.06-144.10 General CW and weak signals
144.10-144.20 EME and weak-signal SSB
144.140 WSJT FSK441/JT44 calling frequency
144.110 to 144.160 WSJT FSK441 or JT44 (around this area)
144.131 PropNet http://www.PropNET.org(with +1500hz PSK audio)
144.150 SSB PSK/HELL/MFSK16/SSTV
144.200 National SSB calling frequency
144.20-144.30 General SSB operation, upper sideband
144.275-144.300 New beacon band
2 Meters FM Digital modes
145.500 SSTV (National SSTV Simplex FM Frequency)
145.550 FM PSK31, Hellschreiber
50.290 would be a good place to listen for PSK, and I'd expect to see WSJT around 50.260.
