FCC Technician Exam Question Of The Day (T2A02)

Q) What is the national calling frequency for FM simplex operations in the 70 cm band?

A) 446.000 MHz

NJ2X Note:
If you have a radio that operates on 70 cm then it is helpful to know the calling frequency since you can use this to make contact with other stations monitoring this frequency.  If you are in an emergency situation and have a 70 cm radio at your disposal, knowing this simple fact may even save someone's life (including your own).
