Default CQ Oshkosh, CQ Oshkosh

My aircraft radio doesn't go that high!

Just a friendly reminder...

The airborne simplex national calling frequency is the same as the ground
frequency...146.520. This frequency also works well on the ground at Oshkosh.
Rarely is it busy for more than a couple of minutes at a time.

For the repeater frequencies, pick up a copy of the Oshkosh Frequency List
downloadable from the home page at www.rstengineering.com

Listen for me and give me a shout...N 73 CQ BlueOnBlue 182.

To Nebraska on Sunday, to St. Louis on Monday, to Oshkosh on Tuesday, weather
gods willing.

My radio does! However when you key up on 34-94 all you hear is
squeal from 50 repeaters at the same time. :-(
146.52 works VERY well into a 10,000 ft high antenna with 1db coax
loss.

34-10-4 as we call it around here isn't much better on the ground :-)

Repeater operation is going to be a problem in most parts of the country
on 2 meters. Just far too congested. Simplex is the way to go in the air.

This brings up a question I hadn't thought of.
Are there FCC/FAA rules regrarding operation
HAM radios from experimental aircraft.

Thanks

Only FAR 91.3 and 91.21. Other than that, the FCC could give a rat's hiney less
where the radio is so long as the operator has the appropriate class of amateur
license for the mode being used.
