Hello, ALL. I haven't been back for some time and thought I'd see what's happening for folks using the 220 mhz band? I find the 220 mhz band to be an excellent band that does well not only over distance but also through obstacles like buildings. I am continuing to use the TYT TH-9000D Mobile Car 60W moblile radio in my jeep and for a base radio in my house. My Omnidirectional isopole continues to work flawlessly at 1:1 and my RG 230 coax continuing to provide very low loss.
