      If the person maintaining that portion of EasyPal wants some help with
      enumerating serial ports or enumerating available serial ports please
      email me off list mentioning EnumSerialPorts or simply go to
      CodeProject.com and fetch this baby.

      Zach Hughs' little baby here is small, quite effective, and easy to add.

        Greetings to all
        I would like to know what are the usual VHF (50 Mhz and 144 Mhz)
        frequencies in FM that are in use in your country.
        Should we use the 144.500 (the SSTV call frequency) advised for
        analog SSTV in Europe or another one?
        I do not see anything related on this on doc papers from
        IARU for region 1.
        I see some advise frequencies for Digital Voice, Packet, Aprs and
        even Fax besides that nobody use it, but nothing for file transfer
        in digital mode.
        I think we should do something about this.
        Any comments?

          The UK bandplans can be found at
          http://www.rsgb.org/spectrumforum/bandplans/

          Also, the IARU Region 1 VHF Managers handbook lists the 'generic'
          bandplans and can be downloaded from http://tinyurl.com/r2p2zz

          Most digital/file transfer activity round here (East Midlands) is on
          either 144.650 or there used to be a Thursday night 'net' on 145.275MHz,
          but I am not sure if that is still going.

                DV means Digital Voice and MGM means Machine Generated Modes.

                So, Digital SSTV/file sharing could be described as a Machine Generated

                Locally we used 144.5 for SSTV, I can t remember every needing to QSY due to other stations calling. To be honest there is so little activity on the mode on 2m
