    I have driven from Colorado, Wyoming to Oregon and back many times. 146.520 FM is your best bet. I spent a few hours making a repeater list and programming them into my radios memories.

    Once and a while I get travelers through the NEPA area such as on 81 or the Turnpike.

    I got to chat with Canadians that were traveling though on a motorcycle.
