Amateur Radio Bands

There are many ranges of frequencies (bands) allocated to the amateur radio service from 135 KHz to 250 GHz. Different bands lend themselves better to different activities and amateurs can take advantage of them all.

  The 160 meter (1.8 to 2 MHz) band is not for condo dwellers. A half wave length antenna is over 260 feet long! This band is generally noisy in the summer months. It is usually uncrowded and you are likely to find some good 'ole boys on the air.
