Get Your Mobile Frequency Sticker On

One of the things I try to do is monitor the National Simplex Calling Frequency for 2 meter FM: 146.52 MHz, especially when mobile. It is fun to see who might show up on 2m simplex: SOTA operators, hikers, mobile stations, campers, etc. See these two posts on operating ideas: A Simple Wilderness Protocol: 146.52 MHz and The Use of 146.52 MHz.

While you may see their call letter license plates or notice their mobile antenna, you may not know what frequency they are monitoring. The Noise Blankers Radio Club has solved this problem — just put this sticker on your vehicle.

After poking around, I found some additional options for indicating your radio frequency:

The 2meter SSB calling frequency:







The APRS frequency:






And there’s this magnet for your refrigerator:








And then there’s this option, 73 the coolest number

73 sticker






If you don’t like any of these, makes it easy to create your own. Go for it!
