If you’ve never lived in Germany then maybe you’ve not heard of Freenet. It comprises 6 channels in the 149Mhz range, 500mw and fixed antenna like with 446Mhz. The HNDX group have organised a mountain DX day for this band and it will be a good one as distances worked on this band in excess of 100km are regular. There is even a gateway on a mountain in Bavaria.
More information for the event can be found on http://www.hndx.de but should be a good fun event as with PMR446 get yourself somewhere high up and make the contacts. We wish them success for this excellent event.
