Hi! I'm a dutch Full licensed HAM coming to the US in july. I will bring either my IC7000 or my Anytone AT-5888UV for use in the rental RV. We will be traveling from New York to Niagara Fals, then down to Shenandoah Valley, to the coast and north via DC to New York again. I would love to make some QSO's while I'm there. I have already found various repeater databases and sites, but none seem to list how active the repeaters listed are. And both my rigs are slow scanners (and I won;t bring my Uniden 3500XLT scanner with me due to the scanner laws), so scanning for activity will be quite hit-or-miss. Does anyone have some pointers how to find busy repeaters or have a list of them? And will using repeaters get me some nice QSO's or am I better off using HF (forcing me to bring the heavier IC7000)? Thanks in advance!
