    Most Amateur Radio Operators today start out with a radio capable of operating FM on the 2 meter band, so, you probably already have the minimum equipment necessary to participate. The objective is simple - make 2 meter FM simplex contacts, challenge your operating limits, and just get on the air and have some fun.

    Since FM Simplex is local, suggesting frequencies has been a challenge. If you have a local simplex frequency that you know is active, use that one, if all else fails, see who you an raise on 146.52.

    Now all you have to do is get on the air! Of course, you don't have to stop there, maybe your station needs an upgrade, whether it’s a handheld needing a better antenna, to the 100' of 30 year old RG8X to your 2 meter vertical on the tower needing replaced, or maybe, a new mobile rig has been on your shopping list.
