For folks without 900 an analog UHF simplex freq a few use is 446.200S 131.8. A good active repeater in the area is the Waltham UHF on 449.075R 88.5. The MARC DMR folks on site are using Simplex VHF on 145.790, CC1, TS1, TG99 or UHF on 446.075, CC1, TS1, TG99 and wide area on Southboro.

Looking forward to Boxboro again. :)

My wife and I will be there and on 900MHz non-amateur. We will be frequency hopping on 902-928MHz with Motorola DTR series 900MHz FHSS digital radios. I plan to also have 446.075 simplex CC1/TS1/TG99 on hand.

I just arrived at the hotel, will be here right through the drawing on Sunday. I'll mostly be on the 927.5875 portable repeater linked to the NEAR-900 network. Also 145.390 simplex, PL 67.0.

It was good to see you all there!

Picked up a 900 MHz rig; now I need to run some better cable than the 100' of RG-8 into my attic, most of which is coiled up. :)
