Re: Newbie question...How important is 1.2 GHZ coverage?



Steve,

     The guy from Down East is really nice.  I had a nice chat with him at
Dayton.  He said he didn't have anymore 1269 Mhz gear and didn't expect to
produce any in the near future (maybe this has changed?).  His new 1296
transverter is really slick, but not readily tunable to 1269.  In fact, he
could of just sold me one (I had cash in hand), but after discussion he told
me it wouldn't do what I wanted.

73,
Joe
