144-222-440 Band Plans

Here is a portion of the Band Plan. I have only posted the 2 meter, 1.25 meter and the 70 centimeters because that all I can use at the moment. My HT Yaesu VX-6 is able to transmit on all three bands. All I did was copy the following bands from the ARRL web site and posted them on a word document. Then I saved and printed it so that I had a small booklet to put into my go kit for reference. To the right of the page you can see a screen shot of the ARRL ham band frequencies chart. You can also find a link to the ARRL web site of the rest of the bands that I did not add to my site at the bottom of the page.

If you want to print this PDF or any other PDF as a small booklet or pages just hit print and under Page Handling select 'Multiple pages per sheet'. I also select '4' under Pages per sheet. I like the 4 pages per sheet for lists like this but 2 pages for information that I might read often. That should be it. You can play with the setting to get what you want.
