This morning I fired up my Icom IC-207 2M/440 radio for this first time in months. I keep in on a corner table in the office and listen in once in awhile.
My frequency of choice is simplex 146.520, not a ton of activity but different than the usually repeater chatter.
Plus in the past I have made some decent contacts on simplex.
Suppose to be a hot sticky day with some rain tonight with the weekend looking nice, beach weather for sure.
