Blog - Recommended uses of APRS 144.39 and 144.99

144.99 has been used effectively for mobile and portable stations in conjested areas like Dayton Hamvention with high stations that digipete to 144.39.

BBS systems have and may still operate on this frequency in some areas.

We might he wise to use this design for qruqsp relay stations with a 1.25 M frequency to be determined.
