    I thought it was 27.185? But that's not 2m.

    Far as I know - hams on 2m are hams on 2m - whether they're driving a rig, a bug or a segway. That whole idea of a 'truckers' anything belongs to another radio service.

    Ted -

    146.520 MHz is the National Simplex frequency for 2-meters.
    IF they are not using a regional/linked repeater through the mountains -- 146.430 and 146.550 MHz simplex were used in parts of the Midwest, at one time for semi-trailer operators that I knew (now retired).

    Now a days we all pretty much sit on 146.52. Some run a pl so they can keep the cab quite unless personally called. That tends to be 88.5. I know a couple guys that run 446.000, but again, its rare. Chances are if you see a truck with a 2m/440 whip on it, give a call on 146.52 and you will get an answer. Also, check out APRS, check all the stations with -14 after there call. Most are big trucks, and most put in there data what freq they monitor. When we see each other pop up near each other, we normally call each other up. Other then that, its pretty quite out there. You can maybe get some more direct answers at . Don't let these trolls get to ya. I am a Ham, and I am a TRUCKER!!!! And I am proud of it! So ya, truckers do use ham radio and do have frequencies that they meet on. Deal with it!

    I don't think anyone has a problem with truckers using ham frequencies when they have a license. Unfortunately there are truckers using our frequencies on 10m/2m/70cm that are not licensed.

    The wording of the original question was poor, and I'm not surprised at the replies.

    Something like, "What frequencies do ham truckers use" makes it clear we are talking about licensed hams.

    "What is the truckers frequency" implies illegal activity to many that read it.
