it is possible that the qrm could have been caused by a 2m fm repeater that
has been installed down here :( by the Radio Club Tegucigalpa within the
upper 2m OSCAR sub-band...it is on 145.940 -600. i have twice written
polite e-mail to the Club informing them as to the current 2m amateur band
asignments for itu region 2, the consequences of employing that particular
frequency for terrestrial purposes and the satellites currently in orbit
operating and/or capable of operating in that sub-band. THEY ARE AWARE OF
THOSE FACTS. however, my appeals have fallen on deaf ears and blind eyes. i
checked with instantrak at the time you state and it is possible that this
fm repeater is what you heard. if you or anyone on this list decide this is
a serious enough matter that it merits an e-mail, the address of the Radio
Club Tegucigalpa is :


happy new year to all.
