What is 2m?
2m band or the 144 to 146 MHz is an amateur radio (ham radio) frequency band which
is allotted to the Grade-II (Restricted) amateur radio licencees. The communication range
is restricted to line-of-sight.
Typical communication range is usually restricted to 30-50 km. However, by the use of
"VHF Repeater/Relay Station" and high-rise antennae, the communication range can
even be extended to 100 km or more. This band can be found useful in a city where there
are a considerable number of licensed radio amateurs active on-the-air.
Delhi VHF Amateur Radio Net
is a regular net, which is basically a directed net under the command of a scheduled
voluntary net-controller. The net runs from 21:30 IST (16:00 Zulu) to 21:45 IST through
the Delhi Amateur Radio
Repeater Station VU2DLR (run by Vigyan
Prasar) on 145.600 with a negative shift of 0.600 MHz Shift
(Repeater receiving on 145.000 MHz & transmitting on 145.600
MHz). The height of the VU2DLR repeater antenna is 95 feet and power is 15 watts. This net
is in existence since June 1, 2001. The objectives of the net are:
(i) To maintain a scheduled network of 2m VHF ham stations in and around Delhi.
(ii) To handle any emergency, priority or medical traffic.
(iii) To check the VHF propagation condition between Delhi & the nearby places
(iv) To convey any ham radio related general/specific traffic.
(v) To create a platform for the Delhi hams.
The typical 'traffics' usually heard are restricted to a signal report exchange and
exchange of the customary greetings with the Net-Controller station. The stations
'checks-in' to the net-controller station and sometime ask for QSOs with another station
either 'direct' or through the repeater after the net.
