2 M (144 MHz)

2 Meter VHF Amateur Ham Radio Band (144 – 148 MHz)

A popular landing spot for most new amateur radio operators is the two meter band. With the popularity of inexpensive handheld radios like this one, and the proliferation of two meter repeaters, it’s no wonder this is the new Technician’s first experience with ham radio. But the 2 meter band isn’t all voice and repeaters. Today we are going to talk about band plans, how they organize the two meter band, and what you can expect to find in between 144 and 148 Mhz.

  • Dual Watch monitoring VHF/UHF and 220Mhz: The 220 MHz band antenna lowpass filter is switched with a relay and the 2 meter lowpass filter and 70 cm highpass filters are switched with PIN diodes – resulting in a audible relay switch noise when monitoring 220MHz with VHF/UHF simultaneously. A relay that completely isolated the 220 MHz RF filter won’t impact the RF performance of the 2 meter/70 cm bands. If monitoring dual 220MHz or VHF/UHF simultaneously the relay is not heard or used.

  • Whats different from the BF-F9 v2+? The BF-F9 v2+ has old firmware. We have rejected firmware – which will get put into different radios “clones” at lower prices. The BF-F9 v2+ is always imported by sea and not air – by the time it even hits the market – it is already MONTHS outdated. The BF-F9 v2+ does not include the high gain antenna. The BF-F9 v2+ has a small 1500mAh battery (our battery is 30% larger). It does not include the earpiece or the full in-depth user manual.
