12 meters FM

Postby kc5fm » Tue Jul 13, 2010 2:51 pm

Off topic, but please help my learning. I learned of the 24 mHz FM list on the 10-Meter FM list. When I visited the list site,

I learned that it is a:

... forum for enthusiasts of the 12 Meter Amateur Radio FM on 24.975 MHz within the existing 12 Meter Amateur Band (24.890 to 24.990 MHz ), to discuss conversion of commercial two-way radio equipment to amateur use, antennas, propagation, and other related topics including monitoring of FM comms in the adjacent non-amateur bands (25.020 to 26.470, 27.430 to 27.530 & 29.700 to ~32 MHz ) for propagation determination.

I did not know and can not find that FM is allowed on any HF band other than 10.

Specifically, 24.975, according to Wikipedia <http://amateur-radio-wiki.net/index.php?title=SSTV_frequencies> is the frequency for Slow-Scan TV. This gives me pause since http://www.bandplans.com/index.php?band=12 does not list anything related to FM on the band.

Any help?

Hi Lloyd, As far as I can tell, FM is for 10 mtrs and above. Did you join that 24.975 Group? What did they say? Just reading their byline on the Group it meantions something about
converting Commercial Radios to Amateur radios. I have no idea what types of rigs they are talking about converting.

Sorry, I can give you any better info.
