    This May will be 5/20. I am setting a personal goal of logging 520 contacts on 146.520. I figured I would spend my time doing something fun and constructive unlike the month that falls before it ;). Lets see how close to me goal I can get. Wish me luck

    Use a Kenwood TS-520 with a 2M transverter for extra points!

    Good luck!

    I wish that more people used the simplex fm frequencies. It used be a lot of fun while mobiling....or, for that matter, while at home. Good luck!

    Good luck with the endeavor, what kind of station do you have for 2M FM?

    If I had a better antenna on 2M I would try something like that. So far just a week of monitoring .52 when mobile and haven’t heard anything on it. I don’t really have a commute though. I had at least one short road trip to South Texas planned for May so I will be on .52. Maybe I can get my wife to log for me while I drive (ha!).

    Its going to be all mobile for now. I have a FTM 400 in my car with a Browning Br-137 antenna. My commute is about an hours each way, though it is kind of quiet at 4am
