    Is anyone knowledgeable about the history of Civil Air Patrol frequencies over the years. I want to reconstruct my experiences as a teen in the 60s. I know there were VHF frequencies and at least one near the CB band. What were the others? Is the current band plan the same as fifty years ago?

    As best I recall, in the early 70's we ran Wing nets and comms on LSB from a Heathkit rig in the 5.3 MHz range... crystal controlled, don't recall the exact frequencies.... Wigwam 203 was our squadron call.

    They changed several frequencies several times in the past 20 years or so.
    All VHF frequencies are now narrowband FM (2.5 kHz deviation) or P25 digital.

    Current CAP VHF frequencies are listed at:

    Last I heard they mostly had regional ALE nets on HF. You could try these but this list is old and PROBABLY NO LONGER ACCURATE. I don't know of a current HF list.

    26.620 was indeed the "11 meter" frequency. I don't know if they still used it or if it is still allocated to CAP.

    It was 26.620MHz. You took a channel 11 crystal set and reversed them.
    In Missouri we ran 4.509? and 4.584 LSB channels. Call signs were “Bluebird”

    Drop K3AIR a note. He is very involved with CAP, and has been for many years.
