> Merry Christmas and Season's Greetings to the list,
> The 222 band has gotten a lot of attention lately. First the
> active thread on this reflector, concerning the ARRL survey
> question. Now the Jan 2010 issue of QST has the first review
> of 1.25m gear since Nov 2003. Talking about the positive
> look at the Jetstream JT220M 222 MHz FM rig.
> Talk about ham radio is good, but action is better.
> Put this recent lift in 222 awareness to work. Get on and
> support 222 Tuesdays. Spread the word, and get others you
> know involved.
> 222 Tuesday is a general activity night. Get on/near 222.100
> SSB/CW or 223.500 FM simplex if you lack SSB gear. Call
> CQ; create activity. The 0100-0400Z hours have been active.
> The ARRL survey numbers show we certainly can use new
> ops on 222 SSB/CW. Make it a personal goal in 2010 to help
> get new signals on this band. Encourage veteran VHF'ers who
> haven't stepped up to 222. Reach out to the FM side and let
> them know about the superior range on 222 SSB/CW. This is
> easily accomplished if many get involved. When you're talking
> about improving numbers on 222, even several dozen new ones
> make a big difference.
> 222 Tuesday was started this summer by N8WNA EN82
> and KC8QAE EN91. I thought it was a great idea and asked
> if I could promote it. That's how we've gotten to where we are.
> How it goes in 2010 is up to every one of you reading this email.
