This page will show local frequencies
for HAM's, as well as for aviation and public radio,
all in the area around Haarlem/Amsterdam in the Netherlands.
First of all, I suggest that you check on my (word) file that I
prepared for programming
my YAESU FT-90R. This word file of just under 200k, lists all
interesting local frequencies,
at least, those that are interesting to me. Being an aviation guy, and
having friends in the boating
world, I also programmed the main aviation communication frequencies,
as well as the local Haarlem
maritime channels. File Frequencies FT-90R.doc shows them all.
I added know local sub audio, as
being used on 2 mtrs and 70 cm repeaters. Please note the
'experimental' repeater on 70 cm.
In addition I have a simple notepad file for you, containing an additional list of aviation
frequencies. The file was prepared in March 2004, and at that time
it was up-to-date.
opinion on 70 cm repeater shifts as used in Benelux and France
This is a nice subject. Why? Because
the 'local' use of the -1.6 MHz shift shows once more that Europe
is just a collection of geographic and etnic groups, with no apparent
drive to strive for commonality.
In Europe, most countries use the 'standard' repeater shift of -7.6 MHz. In Benelux (just for those
have no idea what Benelux means: that's Belgium, Netherlands an
Luxembourg) and France, however,
the +1.6 MHz shift is used.
The problem, of course, is that once one is used to something, things
hard to change. Yet I feel that standardization is in the benefit of
all. Therefore it is encouraging to see
that experimental repeaters are developing, using the -7.6MHz (like
'ours' in Haarlem).
Please view 7point6repeaters.txt
for exact repeater frequencies in both
systems ........... and see the incompatibility.
